The Newtown Meeting House, first erected in 1720, remains the historic and geographical center of Newtown, Connecticut.  For the past two centuries, it has served citizens of the area in a variety of capacities.  To the best of our knowledge, it is now the only meeting house in Connecticut, possibly all of New England, which still stands on its original colonial site location in the middle of the street, and continues to be used as the founders of our country intended.

Maintenance and restoration is on-going and, in 1991, we received the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation Merit Award for our efforts.  The property is listed on both the National Register of Historic Places and the Connecticut Register of Historic Places.

The Newtown Meeting House is administered and financed solely by Heritage Preservation Trust of Newtown, Inc., a 501©(3) corporation. 

If you would like to help us maintain this important historic site, your donations are tax-deductible and, if you wish, you may designate a specific use for your gift.

All donations are handled through PayPal and are secure.
