Portland CT Town Travel Business Information

Middlesex Connecticut Region MapPortland, CT’s oldest church is the First Congregational Church. In 1710 a meeting was held for the building of a meetinghouse for preaching. The Connecticut General Assembly approved “parish privileges” in 1714. After a vociferous controversy, a location for the new “First Ecclesiastical Society of Chatham” meetinghouse was decided upon at “Hall Hill”. On October 25, 1721, Rev. Daniel Newell, the first pastor, was ordained. The Bristol, Connecticut native and Yale College graduate died in 1731. In 1748 a new meetinghouse was built, and in 1843 the name of the society was changed to the “First Ecclesiastical Society of Portland.”
