Gather, Grow, Flourish
The Meetinghouse has stood at the intersection of George Washington Highway and Ridgebury Road since 1760, and is the oldest building site in Ridgefield. The Meetinghouse was the place where the early community gathered to make all their essential decisions, including entering into the Revolutionary War, sending someone into the Continental Congress, or participating in the Underground Railroad. All of these significant decisions were made there. But it was also the space where every aspect of the community’s life happened. Over time, it became a church, and those roots were forgotten.
Today, with community partners Cornerstone Gardens, Art in Common, and Sunrise Cafe, The Meetinghouse is a community hub in Ridgebury with a bright and ambitious future! The Meetinghouse is dedicated to enriching the community of Ridgefield, CT, and the surrounding areas through a vibrant blend of artistic expression, uplifting music, transformative leadership programs, and a welcoming inclusive space for our community partners.
