The guide spent a lot of time with us telling us about the history of early colonial church's. The graveyard behind the church was also interesting.

Friendly congregation and the unique experience of sitting in a box with the family. Pastor asked us to stay after the service even though we were just passing thru.

This is a great place to visit. The staff are knowledgeable and fun to talk to regarding anything in the area, not just the church. Don't miss walking through the cemetery next door. There are placards all over telling the history of who is buried...More

Set in a beautiful Vermont village, with a picture perfect picket fence and a very historic cemetery behind it. Church has records for graves including many Revolutionary war heroes , Robert Frost and much of my own personal family

There was no cost, but a donation box, for this beautiful church. Beautiful in its simplicity. The guide, Jane, was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. Attached is a pretty large cemetery with Robert Frost's grave. The whole visit was about 45 min.
