The Saugatuck Congregational Church decided to move its 1832 sanctuary building across the Post Road (the photo made the cover of LIFE Magazine) and sell its 1866 “Sabbath Meeting Hall” to a non-profit. The WWC and Frederick Bedford realized the opportunity to resolve the meeting space problem and split the cost of the acquisition, move, annexation and renovation. Remarkably, when the 1866 hall was connected to the 1881 Sidney Watts House, eyewitnesses reported that “the clapboard matched” and surmised that the connected buildings were “meant to be.”
