Our History

The First Congregational Church of Richmond was organized September 24, 1801 by two missionaries from Connecticut. There was no church building until 1813 when twenty-nine Congregationalists, five Baptist, five Christians, one or two Methodists, and twenty-one Universalists became proprietors of the Richmond Meeting House, now known as the Old Round Church.

In 1849, the Congregationalists decided to build a church of their own, located at the present site of the Congregational church.

At a May 1903 church meeting, it was decided that it was better to build a new church than repair the old one. The members decided to raise some of the needed money by selling some of the land. A new church street was developed, now called Church Street.

The present building was completed in 1904, a porch was added by 1918, an in 1984 a new addition was dedicated. This building includes offices and Sunday School rooms. One September 24, 2001, Richmond Congregational Church celebrated 200 years of ministry in Richmond and also the renovations to the foundation, kitchen, and dining area.
