The Jamesport Meeting House has been a lot of things in its 275-plus years on the corner of Main Road and Manor Lane in Jamesport. 

It’s been a place where meetings are held — duh! — but it was originally a church and still is used by the North Fork Unitarian Universalist Fellowship on Sundays. It’s also been a concert hall, a place where weddings are held and lately it’s been a recording studio.

The latter is what it’s being used for this weekend as the Eastbound Freight bluegrass band is using the Meeting House to record its second album.
