The Community House

South Congregational Church



Kennebunkport’s recently-restored Community House, overlooking the Kennebunk River, is near Dock Square. The main room features six seven-foot tall windows overlooking the South Church River Green and the picturesque dories on the Kennebunk River. The adjoining parlor library with a triple archway to the main room, has a handsome fireplace mantle, antique grandfather clock and desk, and comfortable leather chairs. The historic 1824 South Congregational Church is diagonally across Temple Street from the Community House, and the River Green is the original nineteenth century home of the Clark Shipyard.

Built in 1929 as the Olympian Club, this gracious building was purchased by the South Congregational  Church, UCC  in 1965, when the commercial kitchen and two half baths were added. The Community House has recently had a $150,000 interior restoration.
