Friends of Grafton's Brick Meeting House
The Brick Meeting House is an architectural and artistic treasure, a visual representation of the history of Grafton, and a cultural touchstone of our community. Ranked among the finest examples of early 19th century vernacular religious architecture in Vermont, Grafton's Brick Meeting House has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places both individually and as a contributing element for the Grafton Village District National Register listing, and is included in the Library of Congress Historic American Buildings Survey.
Preservation Plan
Phase 1
The structure and infrastructure of the Brick Meeting House will be stabilized and repaired to prevent any further deterioration of the building.
Phases 2,3, and 4
Keep a careful eye to the NPS Standards of Rehabilitation where modifications are needed to meet modern building codes. (3) property will be made ready for public use even if all preservation work is not yet complete. (4) research on the Brick Meeting House and on the process of the project itself will be published.




Exterior work has been completed on the Brick Meeting House. We

hope you have a chance to stroll by and see the newly painted building.

 

 



It was discovered during the exterior painting that the spire was badly in need of repair.  It was removed for extensive repair and painting.
