The First Congregational Church had its beginnings as the Ecclesiastical Society of Northbury, established in 1739. The first meetinghouse was completed during the 1760s. The second meetinghouse was built in the 1790s. The present day church was built in 1838.

This woodcut of Plymouth Center, looking westward from Main Street, shows the second meetinghouse on the left side of the Green, and St. Peter's Episcopal Church (built in 1796) on the far right, facing North Street.
