Islesboro's Free Baptist Church was built in 1843 in the northern portion of the town. Elder Ephraim Coombs served as the first preacher. Organized in 1821, the congregation originally met in the homes of its members. In 1847, it is said that an itinerant French painter decorated the interior with stenciling and scroll work. The church now hosts a series of summer lectures and concerts.
