The Rectory and Church of the Immaculate Conception is a historic church complex on North Street in Norfolk, Connecticut. The church and adjacent rectory are two 19th-century buildings that were extensively altered by architect Alfredo S. G. Taylor in 1925. The church was originally a somewhat typical Greek Revival wood frame structure, which Taylor altered by adding a massive stone and stucco tower, as well as widening and lengthening the original structure. The rectory, a somewhat vernacular frame structure, was also stuccoed, giving the complex a vague sense of Spanish Revival architecture.[2]

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