Text of sign:

 

This 16- sided church, Richmond's first meeting house, was built by a group led by William Rhodes in 1812-12 on land donated by

Isaac Gleason & Thomas Whitcomb.  The first Proprietors were members of the five denominations: Baptist, Christian, 

Congregational, Methodist, & Universalist.  Richmond Town Meetings were held here for 160 years, until 1973, when it was 

closed due to structural problems and for restoration.  Maintained by the Richmond Historical Society, and staffed by volunteers, this

National Historic Landmark is used for tours, meetings, ecumenical services, weddings, and concerts.
