The Chestnut Hill Meetinghouse (also known as South Parish Meeting House) is an historic meeting house at the corner of Chestnut and Thayer Streets in Millville, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story wood frame meetinghouse was built in 1769. It is very plainly decorated, with only its door surrounds of architectural interest. They consist of pilasters flanking the door, which is topped by a full triangular pediment. The interior consists of a large meeting chamber, in which stand 26 box pews. The building served as the meeting place of South Parish into the nineteenth century, and is one of a small number of surviving 18th century meetinghouses whose main entrance is on the long side of the building.[2]

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
