Thanks to all the Donors who contributed to the Clock Tower Restoration.
The First Parish Meeting House has stood on Cohasset Common since 1747. When news of the battles at Concord and Lexington reached Cohasset in 1775, the entire town gathered in the Meeting House to plan their response. The structure continued to serve as the town’s meeting house for over a century.
Today the Meeting House stands as a symbol of our town’s history and as the iconic centerpiece of town life. Its classic and simple beauty draws visitors from all over. Many of our local businesses use the structure in their advertising. It is a favorite subject for artists. In 1898 the citizens of Cohasset voted to approve our Cohasset Town Seal that includes an image of the Meeting House.
As you have probably seen, significant structural work is being done on the Clock Tower. Some of the supporting beams have failed. The actual clock belongs to the town, while the Clock Tower is the responsibility of First Parish.
First Parish is a small congregation with a big commitment. Maintaining this historic building is our sacred trust, and we are doing everything we can to keep it in good repair. We have recently painted the entire building, and with the help of the Community Preservation Fund, restored all the windows.
We have restored the Clock Tower, and we appreciate the contributions from so many townspeople as well as our members!
