Old Town Hall is a property in Chester, Connecticut that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. Located at the north end of the Chester Green, the building was built in 1793 as the Second Congregational Meetinghouse. It served as the meetinghouse for the Congregational Church until 1845 when a new Congregational Church was constructed on West Main Street. It was sold to the newly incorporated town of Chester (incorporated in 1836) in 1847 for $300, with stove, and used as the town hall to hold town meetings. In 1876, the building was substantially remodeled as a theater. Aside from its use for local theatrical events and high school graduations, the building continued to be used as the site for town meetings until 1960.
