UU Trivia Question of the Day #8

The origins of UUism: For today’s question, we’re looking to find out when Unitarian-Universalism got started. If you think you know the answer, then please feel free to take a crack at this trivia question, even wild guesses are always welcome:

When was the first Unitarian-Universalist church founded? That is, in what year was founded the first church to be formally organized as Unitarian-Universalist with explicit reference to both traditions in its name (i.e. it wasn’t founded initially as Unitarian, Universalist, or some other Christian denomination, and only later on became UU)? Hint: it was not 1961, the year of Unitarian and Universalist denominational union.

Extra bonus points if you can guess the name of that first UU church.

  1. there is at least one earlier that the one Im going to mention , but I do have to state that
    the Unitarian-Universalist Society of Richmond was founded in 1830, it changed it’s name several times before dying out in the civil war.

    that’s Virginia —
    the church building was kept for a couple of decades after the war.
