The Mercer Meeting House is a circa 1800 building, built by and for the inhabitants of Mercer, Maine. This building once served as a place of worship, of celebration and of meeting. The majestic sound of the bells once called the townspeople to gather. The structure itself has survived over 200 years of harsh Maine weather thanks in part to the dedicated members of the Mercer Old Home Days Association, now known as the Mercer Meeting House Association. Their efforts have placed the Meeting House on both the State of Maine, and National Registers of Historic Places. This honor is not given out easily, and is one that we, the committee, are most proud of.
As with all aging buildings, there is a constant demand for maintenance and repair. Through fundraising efforts and grants, the members of the Mercer Meeting House Association continue to restore and maintain the building. Today, the Meeting House stands as a reminder of years past, and the dedication of preserving history for generations to come.
The Meeting House holds many historical details, from faux wood graining, original tin ceilings, blown glass windows, bell tower and pump organs, to it's majestic ceilings and strong framework design. One step inside and you can almost feel the history here.
