The Old Round Church in Richmond

The Old Round Church in Richmond is one of the most iconic buildings in Vermont. Built in 1813, the church was originally designed for Vermont town meetings and church services. These days, this National Historic Landmark is open to the public during the summer and fall, and is a popular venue for community events and weddings.

According to the Richmond Historical Society, the church is possibly the sole surviving example of an early 19th-century, 16-sided wooden meetinghouse. It’s a beautiful, peaceful place worth visiting any time of year.

    I love that church, Erica! Vermont is full of iconic, eccentric old buildings, especially the covered bridges it’s famous for. Why don’t you put up some posts on covered bridges? (Perhaps you have; if so, where could I find them in your blog archive?)

      Good idea! I just added a tab for my covered bridge stories.
