Alna Meeting House 1789-1790

Our last stop on Sunday was the Alna Meeting House, 1789-1790, which sits at a bend in Alna Road (Rt. 218). The Congregational meetinghouse has been extremely well-preserved with a fully intact interior including extensive early grain painting in pristine condition and spindles at the top of the pew panels. The exterior walls are painted a striking yellow, and covered with clapboards on the south (front) elevation, and shingles on the other three sides.

Alna Meeting House was built by Joseph Carlton in 1789 and incorporated as a Congregational church. Regular church services were conducted until 1878.  Occasional town meetings are still held in the building.
