The first photo shows the church and parsonage around the time that they were completed, on a site just north of the Massachusetts border (it’s really close – the photos were taken about 100 feet north of the border).  Over a century later, the congregation is still there, although the building has changed.  In the 1990s, the church was expanded and renovated, with the original sanctuary being converted into offices and other uses.  The parsonage, however, hasn’t changed much – its exterior is largely the same as it was in 1909, with the exception of the metal roof.
