The Old First Church

Listed under Churches & Abbeys in Vermont, United States.

Pin It

The Old First Church was first gathered on December 3, 1762 where the first Protestant congregation in the New Hampshire Grants held their worship. The present sanctuary was completed in 1805, making it over 200 years old.

Many different parts of the church have been restored since then but worship is still held here as well as meetings and a school. The columns of the church are made from the whole trunks of pine trees and the exterior is meant to resemble the stone of European churches.

The Old First Church welcomes visitors on weekends from Memorial Day weekend to July 1 and daily from July 1 to mid-October. Hours for the church are Monday-Saturday: 10am-noon and 1-4pm. Sundays at 1-4pm.
