Rev. N. R. Nichols was pastor of the Congregational church at Norwich village from February, 1880, to May, 1904, after completing a seven years’ pastorate at Barnet, Vermont, which was preceded by brief pastorates at Westfield, Massachusetts, and Acworth, New Hampshire. During his term of nearly a quarter of a century here in Norwich, Mr. Nichols faithfully cared for the interests committed to his charge, as the one hundred and ninety-five accessions to his church during his pastorate amply indicate.

Not alone to matters connected with his church did he give his attention, but, as well, to those of a temporal character; elevated pleasures, as he viewed them from his conscientious standpoint, were recipients of his countenance and active aid.

For many years Mr. Nichols was one of the trustees of the Norwich public library, in which institution he had a deep interest, and at the front entrance to the library building he caused a pretty door to be placed in memory of his deceased wife.

It may be appropriate to place at the conclusion of this short sketch of the late pastor a few words from the presentation address accompanying a gift of silver coin to Mr. Nichols on the twenty-fifth anniversary of his marriage:

“We love and honor you for the life you have lived among us and for the good you have accomplished.”
