Greenmanville Church at Mystic Seaport
Hold your ceremony at historic Greenmanville Church and you're a pleasant stroll away from your reception - no matter where on the grounds you choose to have it.
Built during the heyday of shipbuilding activity in Mystic about 1851, the Greenmanville Seventh-Day Baptist Church was the focus of the town's considerable Seventh-Day Baptist community. The congregation, which was an offshoot of the Greenman brothers' own home parish in Westerly, Rhode Island, built the church (the original site is adjacent to the present main entrance to Mystic Seaport) largely through the support of the Greenman and Fish shipbuilding families.
With the decline of the shipyard during the 1870s and 1880s, the congregation was depleted and the church was finally closed in 1904. After passing from hand to hand as a private residence and apartment building, the old church was acquired by Mystic Seaport in 1955. The Greenmanville Church is available for ceremonies from 10 to 11:30 a.m. and 5 to 6:30 p.m.
