As Newburgh Parish grew into a village and town, churches became central to the community’s stability and welfare. Although Newburgh began as a Lutheran parish, within a century Reformed Protestant churches gained strength and their records tell a tale of social charity and power. The volunteer Fire Department, chartered back in 1797, remained an independent civic organization through the first decades of the 20th Century.
