Romance & History

Wedding at Rockingham Meeting House VT

What a way to start the wedding season!  Photographing a wedding at one of the oldest historic structure in the country. The Rockingham Meeting House VT, also known as Old North Meeting House and First Church in Rockingham, is a historic civic and religious building on Meeting House Road in Rockingham, Vermont. The Meeting House was built between 1787 and 1801 and was originally used for both Congregational church meetings as well as civic and governmental meetings. Church services ceased in 1839 but town meetings continued to be held in it until 1869. It was designated a National Historic Landmark in 2000 as an exceptionally well-preserved “second period” colonial-style meeting house. The building, owned by the town, is available for weddings and other events under rules established by the town.

Reception was held at Rockingham Hill Farm, right down the street from the Church. Another gem I had the pleasure to explore during a “work day”. Rockingham meeting house VT
