THE HISTORICAL SOCIETY
OF WELLS AND OGUNQUIT
PRESERVING THE PAST FOR TWO MAINE TOWNS
Historic Weddings By the Sea
We're thrilled to share our historic Meetinghouse by the seaside, the perfect spot for a "happily ever after." The Meetinghouse, built in 1862 and on the National Register of Historical Places, is a beautiful light-filled space in the Gothic Revival style with historic original features, including the nineteenth-century chandelier, vintage pump organ, and beautiful wood floors.
We're happy to show you the Meetinghouse during our regular hours (posted at the bottom of this page) or by appointment.
The rental fee of $800 includes the rehearsal and decorating day and the ceremony.
The Meetinghouse seats 225-250 and is air-conditioned. It has two aisles, an organ, and an electronic keyboard. Because we are an historic building, not a church, there are no denomination restrictions. There is parking in our driveway as well as the use of an additional parking lot next door.
More photos are available on our Historic Weddings Facebook page.
Be sure to contact us with any questions or to reserve a date for your special day!
