Meeting House

Built in 1747, our classic New England church offers an intimate and elegant setting for your once-in-a-lifetime event. The Meeting House seats guests on the ground and in the balcony. Over 200 people can be accommodated.

Musical instruments include a Steinway grand piano and a George Hutchings organ in the balcony, as well as an upright piano on the main floor. Tuning fees and use fees may be required.

The classic architecture of the Meeting House, its simple but elegant interior finishes, and its carved 18th century pulpit, it has become a popular location for weddings. It has even served as a location for a major Hollywood film.

Events can be livestreamed from the Meeting House, using our tech crew. To be sure our tech crew is available, at least two weeks notice is advisable.

Right across the street from the Meeting House is our Parish House, including our event venue, Trueblood Hall.
