Our Heritage Landmarks


Free Meeting House

The Free Meeting House, built in 1821 is one of Moncton’s oldest standing public buildings. Its purpose was to serve as a home for all religious denominations until such time as individual groups could raise the money required to build their own churches.

In June 1990, the Free Meeting House was designated a National Historic Site.

Visits are offered by request at the Admissions desk of Resurgo Place, adjacent to the Free Meeting House during business hours.
