The First Parish Unitarian Church is a historic church on North Street in Medfield, Massachusetts. The white clapobarded church was built in 1789, as the third for a congregation established c. 1652. In 1839 it was rotated on its site ninety degrees. It lost its steeple in the New England Hurricane of 1938.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.[1]
