The Old Sloop Fair is one of the oldest and largest church fairs on the Massachusetts North Shore. The First Congregational Church was organized in 1755. The building that is now the church sanctuary was constructed in 1804 and originally served as the town meetinghouse. The tall steeple and white facade close to the Sandy Bay shoreline resemble a ship's sail when seen from the sea, and the nickname "Old Sloop" was conferred by the fishermen. The steeple contains the Town Clock.
