Housatonic Congregational Church is a historic church at 1089 Main Street in Great Barrington, Massachusetts. It was built in 1892 to replace an earlier church, the first built for the congregation in 1842. It was designed by H. Neill Wilson, who also designed a number of notable Pittsfield buildings. In 1902 a new parsonage replaced an earlier one which was purchased by the Monument Mills Company; it was sold in 1979 to provide funds for needed work on the church and the rest of the property. The sanctuary's stained glass windows were restored in 1978.[2]

The church was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.[1]

The church was bought by the Unitarian Universalist Meeting of South Berkshire in 2014.[3]
