Biographical / Historical
Ten people organized Mayflower Congregational Church April 12, 1891 in New Duluth. New Duluth was annexed to Duluth in 1895 and functions as a Duluth neighborhood. An April 1, 1895 document is a list of members committing specific sums to retain William N. Moore as pastor. A February 5, 1896 letter from Pastor Moore to the members indicate he will leave at the end of that year, and states that Moore came to the congregation " an untried man…straight out of my law office." George M. Keyes was treasurer.
