The Rockingham Meeting House opens for the 2023 season on Saturday, May 27th . Visitors are welcome daily through the end of October, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Built in 1787 the meeting house remains in its original form and is the oldest public building in Vermont that remains unchanged. It is designated a National Historic Landmark.

The meeting house is owned by the town of Rockingham and operated as a museum, with docents on hand to tell the story about the architecture and history of the building. The adjacent cemetery, which continues in use today, contains more than 1,000 graves, and is a treasure trove of information about the lives and deaths of the town’s early settlers as well as 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 Vermont Route 103.
