HISTORY First Congregational Church was founded October 25, 1721 when early settlers formed what was then known as the Third Society of Middletown, later called Chatham and now known as Portland. The present church building is the third meetinghouse and was dedicated on December 18, 1850. The original Gothic revival style has changed over the years, but still stands as a tangible living link to the past. First Congregational Church joined the United Church of Christ in 1961.
