The Unitarian Church (also known as the First Congregational Society - Unitarian of Hampton Falls) is a historic church on Exeter Road (New Hampshire Route 88) in Hampton Falls, New Hampshire. The 1-1/2 story wood frame structure was built c. 1838, and has been little altered since. It is regionally distinctive for its lack of steeple and its Greek Revival temple front, with two full columns supporting an entablature and triangular pediment. It is further distinguished by the presence of Victorian trompe-l'œil panels and ribbing on its interior walls.[2]


The church was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1][3]
