The first photo is that of the first pulpit used in Westborough, Mass on January 15th 1718 that Rev. Ebenezer Parkman used. Also his bible that he used is a display case next to the pulpit. These items are today found at (second photo) The Parkman Memorial Chapel at the Congregational Church.

For a glimpse at the Reverend Ebenezer Parkman’s Diary that he kept for 65 years (printed by the University Press of Virginia):

The building to the right was Westborough ‘s second Meeting House / Church where Reverend Ebenezer ministered until his death. It was the second church building he preached in at Westborough. This is the Reverend Ebenezer Parkman’s church where the Paul Revere bell was gifted by  Samuel Parkman. It was the first church bell to ring in Westborough. After his death the steeple was removed and the building became known as the Arcade used for commercial purposes. The bell then went to the Westborough Baptist Church.
