Many times we have ridden past this church going to the interstate to travel to other places, but today we noticed that it was open! There was to be a wedding in the afternoon. In the meantime, a member of the Historical Society told us many things about this fascinating building. Three congregations used it at one time, and then... More

This is a gem of building: 200 years old this year and the only remaining round wooden church in the US. It is open daily staffed with a volunteer who provides a good history and shows you the highlights of the building. There are several items for sale about the building including a new history for a $10. Toss in... More

Great place to photograph and if its open to make a short visit. It is near the town on the way to the Audubon Center and the Birds Museum of Vermont.

If you like19th century architecture, churches reimagined as concert halls, and historic sites (national historical register), you will enjoy a walk about this lovingly restored and maintained building.

I first visited this church when I was accompanying a group of seniors on a bus tour with a bit of time to spare before our lunch reservations. We happened to drive by the building and sort of ogled the place longingly--so quaint and interesting. Luckily for us, they were setting up for a wedding. The volunteer docent overseeing that...

Went here for a wedding. There are not many round churches still around. It was a charming piece of yesteryear.

The Round Church is celebrating its 200th anniversary in 2013. It's an architectural gem that the community has worked hard to preserve. In the winter, it serves as the community sledding hill; in spring, summer, and fall, the building is open to the public, managed by volunteer docents. There's more information, including a schedule of activities, at the Richmond Historical... More

The Round Church has very caring and educated docents who will give you an overview of the history of this church. You can walk around it on your own, as well. It brings you back in time to a small part of Vermont history.

It was the most unique church I have been into. No heat so you would not want to plan a winter wedding. Very close to the highway for guests but still in the country and small town feel. Great setting.

I've admired this church for years. It is iconic. This time I brought my adult daughter and she commented that it may be a nice place for an intimate wedding. At the very least, it is classic New England and worth a drive by.
