Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 16, 2000):
The Rockingham Meeting House is a rare 18th century New England meetinghouse of the "second period" type, virtually unaltered on the exterior or interior. Its barn-like massing and austere appearance evoke Medieval and Puritan forms, yet it is styled in the Georgian manner to a degree unmatched among surviving New England meetinghouses of its type and period. It is the most intact 18th century public building remaining in Vermont, and is a distinctive survivor from the period of settlement by European immigrants when structures built at public expense were employed for both religious and civic purposes.

Condition:
According to SHPO, there are no known threats to the landmark

There are no known changes since the last reporting period (2006).
