The First Universalist Church is a historic church on Main Street in Kingston, New Hampshire. It is a wood frame structure which was designed by architects Damon Brothers and built in 1879. It is rectangular in shape with a gable roof and a four-stage square tower projecting out of its northwest corner. The first stage of the tower has paired stencilled rectangular windows, and the second has single four-leaf-clover windows. The third stage is louvered on all four sides, and houses the church bell. The last level has clock faces on all four sides, and the steeple rises above. The interior has stencilwork done by unknown craftsmen. The church is an excellent local example of Stick style architecture by prominent regional architect.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
