A guide gave us MUCH history about this church

Just happened by on the way to Birds of Vermont. Stopped and was surprised that a guide was there to explain the history of this church. It is on the National Registry too.

This is a historical landmark in the Richmond area dating back to 1812!. It is a 16 sided polygon. The church is very quaint and it is a fun stopping point when traveling thru the area during the summer months.. Inside, there are doors on the pews and back in the day, the donations of families secured their family pew.... More

My wife and I visited on a day trip and found the church that's maintained by the historical society. The gentleman that greeted us was very knowledgeable about the eary construction and pointed out various feature of the building. It's a must see in the leaf season.

A unique place to visit. Weddings and special services are held here year round. It is kept in great condition so that visitors can appreciate the quality work that was done to make it.

We were greeted by the friendly lady volunteer and treated to a brief history of this lovely building. Over the years some things have changed, like the small organ and the height of the pulpit. Try sitting on one of the benches (they are all boxed in); unless you are really skinny you'll realize how much smaller people were in... More

Very attractive. Lovingly protected by the people of Richmond. Great place for a wedding. Across the street from Riverside Park. Visiting ORC would be a charming component of a walking tour of Richmond, VT. There are 3 good places to eat & a bakery. Friday's Farmers Mkt. would add to the fun.

This church is a truly remarkable sight! It's really one of a kind, I've never scene anything like it. It's well worth it to look around on the inside as well as the outside. Trust me, it's shape isn't the only interesting thing about it, the decor and interior are just as mind boggling.

We also saw this marked on a map and were intrigued so we decided to stop here. We found it open and staffed by a volunteer who showed us around and explained the history of the church. We spent much longer here than expected and took lots of photos inside and out - looks great surrounded by fall foliage.

I saw the notation of a historical place on a AAA map and researched it. We stopped at the Round Church on our way to Stowe, Vermont. The building is open till the second week in October from 10-4pm. We arrived at 10 am and found the most pleasant guide inside. Ironically, he happened to be from the town where... More

This round church is 200 years old and has been nicely restored and maintained. It originally served 5 Protestant denominations and was built by having persons buy the enclosed pews. It has not been used as a church for many years, but weddings and concerts and meetings are held in the building. The church looks more round in the interior.... More
