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

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

this is a gorgeous landmark in Camden. Sadly, right now, the steeple is being repaired so it's hidden by scaffolding. This is a great church for anyone looking for a place to worship

The Chestnut Street Church is in the process of being restored. There's scaffolding surrounding the steeple right now. By the end of the summer, there should be a brand new steeple.
