Our Historic Meetinghouse

Animation by Mr. Joe Roberts

Built in 1774 at the site where the Tunxis, Quinnipiacs, Wangunks, and/or Mattabesetts used to gather.

Our simple white meetinghouse, which can comfortably seat about 300 people, was built over 300 years ago. Back then, the Town of Berlin was organized into meetinghouse districts and the Kensington Meeting House, as well as the town library - which it housed, became important centers for discussion and debate.

During the Civil War, a 10' by 18' flag handmade by our ladies proudly hung from the bell tower. (It was restored in 2002 and hangs in our Parlor.) Stop by some Sunday morning to experience the its dignified simplicity, its great acoustics, and see our unique historical exhibits in the lobby and balcony. You can read more about the Meeting House under the Our History link.

Enjoy below a short slide show of the exterior and interior of this beautiful Historical structure.
