The Huntington Street Baptist Church is a historic Baptist Church meeting house at 29 Huntington Street in New London, Connecticut. The Greek Revival-style church building was constructed in 1843 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982. The building was originally built as a Universalist Meeting House, but was purchased by The New London Baptist Society in 1849. The Baptists called Elder Jabez Swan as the founding pastor. The account of Rev. Swan's ministry in New England is recorded in his biography.

The church is still in use today as a Baptist house of worship.[2]
