Rocky Hill Meeting House, 4 Old Portsmouth Road, Amesbury, Mass.

The Connexion Shape-Note singers, led by Ben Bath, bring Rocky Hill Meeting House alive with music from the period in which it was built. These all-volunteer singers blend community voices young and old, united by a passion for the four-part hymns and anthems that defined the sound of Early American music.

Rocky Hill Meeting House is a perfect place to experience this powerful sound. It was first taught in eighteenth-century Massachusetts by teacher-composers such as William Billings of Boston, John Stickney of Newburyport, and Jacob Kimball of Topsfield. Rocky Hill Meeting House is one of the best preserved examples of an original eighteenth-century meeting house interior. There are no restroom facilities on site. The building is also unheated. We encourage visitors with any concerns to call ahead.
