The Gloucester Meetinghouse Foundation is dedicated to preserving Gloucester’s oldest standing meetinghouse as a civic hub, cultural venue, and community action center.
Now in its third century, the Gloucester Meetinghouse is an excellent example of Federalist architecture whose 110’ bell tower, visible from Gloucester’s inner and outer harbors, has served as a beacon for mariners and visionaries. The 325 seat auditorium features fine concert hall acoustics and is ideally suited for the variety of musical performances, films, and symposia presented each year. The
Meetinghouse is a perfect backdrop for the free nine-week outdoor evening concerts honoring Gloucester’s cultural diversity and raising awareness and funds for many of the area’s non-profit institutions. For the past three years, the Meetinghouse has hosted
Gloucester’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day observance concluding with the ringing of the 1806 bell cast by Paul Revere and Sons and symbolizing freedom for all.
