Friends of First Parish Meetinghouse
are working tirelessly to restore this historic, and architectural treasure.
Your help is needed in restoring First Parish. Will you support us?
Towering over Town Square in Plymouth, Massachusetts, on the site where a meetinghouse has existed since 1622, stands a historic treasure, a symbol of our country's origin, a tribute to the Pilgrim's journey to America, and a cornerstone of our history.
At the heart of the Pilgrim story stands Plymouth’s First Parish Meetinghouse, birthplace of religious and civic freedom in America.
Restoration of the stone façade is essential to maintaining the structural and historical integrity of the Meetinghouse. If the façade is not successfully restored and flashing in many areas replaced in the near future, the deterioration will continue and, eventually, the structure itself will be compromised.
Through its Norman architecture, unaltered Arts & Crafts interior, and unique stained glass windows, the 1899 Meetinghouse celebrates the freedoms established by the Pilgrims—freedoms that continue to draw immigrants to America from around the world.
