A. M. Osgood, Pastor 1912-1917
Methodist Church


A. M. Osgood was the 21st minister of the Maynard Methodist Church serving from 1912-1917. The history of the church extends back to when the area was referred to as Assabet Village. Church organization was discussed at a meeting for the purpose of having Methodist preaching in the village of Assabet on February 2, 1867. By September of that year all was in readiness for the signatures of the members on the Declaration and Pledge. The first minister was Rev. J. A. DeForest, appointed in 1867. By 1868 there were 112 members in the Sunday School, with 14 teachers. The current church at the intersection of Main and Summers Streets was built in the late 1890s.

Cabinet Card
Cabinet cards were popular from the 1870's through the 1920's. The have a thin gelatin (black and white) or albumen (sepia) print pasted on heavy card stock, usually 4 ¼ x 6 ½ in. The subject matter was a formal portrait of a single individual or group. The card was large enough that it could be seen mounted on a cabinet across a room hence the name Cabinet card. The photographer also appreciated the extra room on the card for name recognition on the front and back.
