Rockingham Meeting House
Meeting House Rd
Rockingham, VT

 

The Rockingham Meeting House welcomes visitors daily through Indigenous People’s Day (September 23) from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.

Built in 1787, the meeting house remains substantially in its original form and is the oldest public building in Vermont that remains unchanged. It is a designated National Historic Landmark with king-post timber framing, finely detailed woodwork, and “pig pen” box pews.

The building hosts an annual pilgrimage in August as part of the town’s “Old Home Days” celebrations.

The meeting house is owned by the town of Rockingham and operated as a museum, with docents on hand to offer additional information about the architecture and history of the building. The adjacent cemetery contains more than 1,000 graves and is a trove of information about the lives and deaths of the town’s early settlers, and it has some of the finest gravestone art to be found in New England.

The meeting house is located just north of the village of Bellows Falls and Interstate 91 Exit 6, just off VT Route 103.
