The Fourth Congregational Church, now the Horace Bushnell Congregational Church, is a historic church at Albany Avenue and Vine Street in Hartford, Connecticut. The building is a Georgian Revival structure, designed by Davis and Brooks and built in 1913-14 for a congregation known as The Free Church and later as the Fourth Congregational Church, established in 1832. This church building notably reused the doors, steeple, and portico of the congregation's old church, an 1850 building designed by New Haven architect Sidney Mason Stone. The Bushnell congregation was formed by the merger in 1954 of the Fourth Congregational with the congregation of the Windsor Avenue Congregational Church building on Main Street.

The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[2][1]
