this is a gorgeous landmark in Camden. Sadly, right now, the steeple is being repaired so it's hidden by scaffolding. This is a great church for anyone looking for a place to worship

The Chestnut Street Church is in the process of being restored. There's scaffolding surrounding the steeple right now. By the end of the summer, there should be a brand new steeple.

This is a grand church that is 200+ years old. They are raising money to repair the enormous steeple and spire. The bells toll he hours of the day. Kinda' reassuring sound that soothes the heart. Get a photo of this city icon!

The people who greeted me were harsh and angry. I hated my visit. When I visit another church I want to worship in a safe environment, but was abused by the church members, who treated me like an outsider. Would God want this?More

You can see the steeple from almost everywhere you go in Camden, Maine. We stayed right across from this while we were in the area, and on Sunday morning, they keep the front doors open (during the Summer anyway) so you can hear the church...More

Very pretty and all through the night on the hour heard the church bells chime. After the first night got use to listening to them and they did not wake us up.
