The Meeting House is in the process of being politely renovated. The old "pigpen" style of seating is totally reminiscent of the past so long ago. The peaceful cemetery behind the Meeting House, which itself sits high on a hill, is a beautiful setting.

For those of us from Bellows Falls, this is sacred ground. Come, visit, feel the generations before us.

When used as a music venue it'shard too beat. A long show will make your butt sore on those hard Puritan benches.

I had never heard of this place until I saw it listed along with the Vermont Country Store on Trip Advisor. We ventured to the site. It is situated on a hill. We drove up near the meeting house and a lady popped out of the door. Rosemary was our guide and, by the end of our hour there, turned into a friend. She gave us a first-class narration of the history of the meeting house and the town. While she sat in one of the pig pens (the boarded off sections of the church that have benches for the attendees) and talked to us, she pointed to a plaque. It happened to have the name of one of my relatives (I had no idea that he was buried in the adjoining cemetery). The visit from this point turned out to be an exciting genealogical discovery that involved Rosemary and a local photographer who came to take photos. There is a book on the Old Meeting House available for $15. No admission charge but donations accepted. This building is amazing. There is no electricity in the church. Rosemary played the pump organ for us. The acoustics are wonderful: there is a sounding board over the pulpit that amplified the speaker's voice. The house needs lots of repair. Hopefully, some funding will come that will assure that this beautiful, historic building is preserved. The cemetery is still being used. There are many old interesting tombstones.…

This wonderful old white wooden building really moved me. The setting is magical, especially on a summer evening. We lingered until the sun set in the deep lavender sky. Being there felt like being transported in time. There is nothing to "offend the eye." Thank goodness this perfect old meeting house has been protected for future generations. It's so beautiful, it's worth the short detour off the main road. Walk around the graveyard. It's remarkable.…
