Additional Product Details

History of the Center Meetinghouse: With its steeple pointing skyward, the meetinghouse was the dominant symbol of every New England town - the gathering place for town meetings, elections, and church services. Many 19th-century New England towns had several different meetinghouses, reflecting the region's increase in religious diversity after the Revolutionary War.

The Center Meetinghouse was built as the Baptist Meetinghouse in Sturbridge in 1832. When Old Sturbridge Village acquired it in 1947, its original interior was extensively modified to resemble a pre-1800s meetinghouse with paneled "slip" pews. The rest of the meetinghouse has been restored to its 1830s appearance.
