The Meeting House

 
The last standing public structure in the community of West Norwalk, the meeting house has been used continuously for over 150 years.
The meeting house was built to be a house of worship – it was miles to any church, by horse or by foot in those days  – built with wood very likely milled in the local mills along the Five Mile River  – built by residents of the area

They called themselves the West Norwalk Christian Union Association and the building was a chapel, a place for worship for four local Protestant denominations.  It was also -from the start – a community gathering place

About

The meeting house is still a simple, sturdy white building, 25 x 48 feet, with its original clapboard,  a tower in front, original tall pointed windows along the sides, lovingly restored inside  –  and crying out for outside painting and restoration.  You may pass it everyday as you drive along West Norwalk Road.  When you do, think about helping to maintain this historic building.
