The church was built by the Independent Congregational Church and Society in 1862. The Society was formed by a group of people who split off from the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church. They built their church on land donated by one of their members and financed through member contributions such as a wooded lot, 4 shares of stock and one woman’s gold beads.
By 1913 the building was not in use and the members had returned to the Presbyterian Church while still keeping their religious society active. The Trustees voted to refurbish the building and grounds for use as a library. In 1914 the Trustees approved the rental of the building for a dollar a year. The Library was opened and staffed by volunteers and the granted a charter in 1917. A furnace and electricity were installed in 1920. In 1927 the Cutchogue Methodist Church burned and the Congregational Society closed the library to allow the Methodists to use the building for worship while they were building their new church. The Library was reopened when the new Methodist church was completed.
