LANDGROVE, Vt. – When you are looking for an experience and an escape, we have the place for you. Come to the Sunday services at the Landgrove Meeting House this summer for fellowship, music, lifted voices, and inspirational words, set in a simple, classic 161-year-old building nestled in a pastoral Vermont landscape. Summer services held each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. from June 30 through Aug. 25.
Our service presenters are prominent individuals in diverse fields and distinguished clergy from Judeo-Christian traditions who not only help us to interpret our world but take us down new paths of understanding. This also provides a sanctuary for civil discourse, a true exchange of ideas, hopes, concerns, and a respite from divisions and diversions. All is enhanced by song and the talented professional players who provide music every week. Our old pump organ is still in working condition and adds to the service splendor. Following each service, refreshments are served on the lawn just outside the meetinghouse.
We will again participate in a statewide reading and discussion of Frederick Douglass’s 1852 address commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence, followed by a guided discussion. Co-sponsored by the Vermont Humanities Council, the Landgrove Historical Society and LMH, it will be at the Meeting House Thursday, July 4 at 2 p.m.
The Landgrove Meeting House is located at the intersection of Hapgood Pond and Landgrove roads in Landgrove, just a brief drive from the mountain towns and no more than a stone’s throw from Manchester. We kindly ask that when you visit the church, please park on the cemetery side of the road.
