The spire stands high above the town so we were lured by that - and glad that we were. It was a striking scene; the weather and the colour of the leaves contributing enormously to our appreciation of the scene.

Things to do in Camden! Really? More like - things you can't do. Arggghhh, yet another iconic, New England church that isn't open to the public. Why? And not a phone number or contact number to find out if someone has a key or why...More

This beautiful church tower clock chimes every hour, reminding you that you are indeed in Camden. The steeple needs refurbishing and the members are engaging the community and visitors to help. A small donation means the steeple will be safe and the clock will chime...More

Sadly, this church did not allow visitors during the workday and its doors were locked to the public. It is centrally located on one of the main side streets and its tower very visible throughout the village.More

At the edge of downtown, this church peeks around many mature trees and is beautiful to see as the sun sets on its steeple.

Quaint church that is a boating landmark. Larger than the lighthouse, entering the harbor the steeple was a focal point in locating the harbor.

We have been to Sunday AM worship several times. The old church/sanctuary are beautiful and the small congregation was very warm and friendly. Go to see the structure or to worship!

What a beautiful place, everyone who comes to Camden who is a bit older recognizes this loveliest of all mid-coast villages, as the home of the film, "Peyton Place." Many of the churches, houses, buildings are still there only looking better than ever! I love...More
