The 1717 Meetinghouse is a prototypical example of a Colonial New England Meetinghouse.

Let’s check the list from Wikipedia’s (verbatim with notes) definition:

✅A colonial meeting house was a meeting house used in colonial New England built using tax money.

✅The colonial meeting house was the focal point of the community where all the town's residents could discuss local issues, conduct religious worship, and engage in town business.

✅The origin of the "town meeting" form of government, can be traced to meeting houses of the colonies.

✅The meeting houses that survive today were generally built in the last half of the 18th century.

[note: The 1717 Meetinghouse commenced construction in 1717, and held its first service in 1719; it stands notably older than typical surviving New England Meetinghouses. It is even ten years older than Boston’s Old South Meetinghouse.]

✅The styles are remarkably similar, most were almost square, with a steep pitched roof running east to west.

✅There were usually 3 doors: The one in the center of the long south wall was called the "Door of Honor," and was used by the minister and his family, and any honored out-of-town guests.

✅The other doors were located in the middle of the east and west walls, and were used by women and men, respectively.

✅A balcony (called a "gallery") would usually be built on the east, south, and west walls, and a high pulpit would be located on the north wall.

☑️As separation of church and state took hold, some towns architecturally separated the building's religious and governmental functions by constructing a floor at the balcony level, and using the first floor for town business, and the second floor for church.

[note: Even after the separation of church and state decree of 1834, Town and village secular meetings were still held in the Meetinghouse, and School was held in the northeast corner of the balcony. However, the functions of this building were not separated by dividing secular and religious by the construction of a floor at the balcony level. A Town building was instead built in 1837 at the intersection of Oak and Old Stage Road.]

✅Most of these structures that are still standing have been renovated several times to meet the needs of their owners and the styles of the times. [ see next note]

✅In the early 19th century, people wanted "modern" churches that had one entrance on a short end of the building, a long aisle to a pulpit on the other short end, and slip pews instead of box pews.

[ note: In 1852 the building was remodeled to reflect a neo-classical design. But, instead of tearing down the Meetinghouse as did East Parish, West Parish did a facelift - keeping the original flooring, walls and beams in place. Seventy years ago, the 1717 Meetinghouse Foundation led the charge to return the Meetinghouse to its original form.]

This original meetinghouse was constructed in 1717, and is worth the time to stop and investigate. The architecture and structure are well-preserved, and amazing to see, including the exposed beams that create the interior structure of the building. It has been well maintained over there years, and was completely refurbished in the 1950's. It is perched upon a small rise, with its tall spire, making an impressive sight. Check it out, and take a few moments to learn about the history of the building and its uses over the past three centuries!
