WHO WE ARE
Built in 1866, The East Fairfield Union Meeting House has been the architectural, social and spiritual anchor of our rural community for 150 years. Folks were married here, baptized their babies here, and attended candlelit Christmas Eve services here. For generations, the weather, milk prices, and road conditions were seriously discussed within these four walls.
Nine years ago, the building was acquired by an enthusiastic group of local residents under the umbrella of the Fairfield Community Center Association, a small non-profit organization providing essential services and enrichment programs to the region. We firmly believe that one way to preserve the character and integrity of a community is through the preservation of its old buildings. Further, we're convinced that music has the power to bind us all together, especially during difficult times. Thus, we find ourselves with The Meeting House on the Green, and the exciting challenge of preserving it for future generations, as well as re-purposing it with what is considered by many to be one of Vermont's premier music venues.

NEXT PROJECTS & FUNDRAISING
Here at The Meeting House on the Green, we’re entering year 9 of a 10-year preservation project. Thanks to fundraising efforts, grants, and donations from friends and neighbors, we’ve accomplished a LOT! We’ve upgraded the electrical system, restored the stained glass windows, improved lighting and sound, built an outdoor performance space with wheel chair access, installed an energy efficient furnace, and repaired and painted the exterior of the building.
Please help us continue our work to preserve this lovely historic landmark while bringing great live music to Franklin County. Our 2022 fundraising goal of $20,000 will help us paint the interior of the building, repair the antique ceiling fixtures, and continue to improve our sound system. There's talk of cushions for the pews! Hope we can count on your support! Donate online or mail a check to us at: Meeting House on the Green, Box 16, East Fairfield, Vermont 05448. And thank you very much!
