The West Fairlee Center Church was officially entered on the National Register Historic Site on June 21, 2002. The Registry application process started in 1988. The architectural significance of the church is that it typifies many of the characteristics of the Greek Revival architectural style. The first house of worship was built in 1811 and replaced by the present building in 1855.

Since 1999, a small group of members (now less than 15), set out to raise funds to restore the Church. The restorations were extensive. Through their hard work, the Church has been beautifully preserved. However, it is hoped that restoration does not reach a crisis situation in the future. Any building and one that is over 160 years old will always need maintenance to keep this National Historic Site in good condition.
