The West Norwalk Meeting House

GoFundMe Fundraising Campaign Has Begun

Please Donate Today

The West Norwalk Meeting House sits at the center of historic West Norwalk, Connecticut. Constructed in 1868, the Meeting House has served as a community gathering spot and resource for generations.

This charming piece of history is one of the few that remain in our neighborhood. Please help us maintain and preserve this beautiful building.

It needs serious repairs. The roof has begun to leak, and the interior is deteriorating. The in-ground oil tank must be relocated to the cellar for safety reasons. To make the building more useful, we'd like to install a driveway so attendees can park away from the street. Finally, both the interior and exterior need repainting.

Please help us save The Meeting House and let it continue to be a place where people from Norwalk can gather and see their neighbors. Once we can make these repairs, we will be able to once again share its wonderful flavor with the neighbors for community events and an inexpensive rental for your family and friends.

Fall Cleanup Coming Soon!

Help us tidy up the Meeting House grounds on November 16th 2019 at 1pm.

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
