Henry Alline Monument
Falmouth, Nova Scotia

Alline was for a while a minister at Falmouth, Nova Scotia. He is said to have founded a sect of Allenites (his name is sometimes spelled Allen), who maintained that Adam and Eve before the fall had no corporeal bodies, and denied the resurrection of the body. These peculiar views may have had a place in his prose works, but are not found in his 487 Hymns and Spiritual Songs, in five books, of which the third edition was published in Dover and Boston, Massachusetts, in 1797, and another at Stoningtonport, Connecticut, in 1802.
