Kane County Chronicle | History Made: Church keeps history alive every Sunday

I’m not so sure how much we keep history alive, but we keep a faith pretty in synch with Conant’s alive. (Hey, any press is good though!)  I think he’d feel that way.  The opening paragraphs and the link to the rest below…

Augustus Conant was a man with a purpose – even if it meant drifting away from the family business.

Conant was born Oct. 16, 1811, in Brandon, Vt., to Ebenezer Conant and Fanny Clifford. He later went on to help form the First Christian Congregation of Geneva, later known as the Unitarian Church in Geneva and now the Unitarian Universalist Society of Geneva. The church is part of the Central Geneva Historical District, which was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. The Kane County Chronicle is taking a look at area buildings on the register this week.
