In addition to the annual open house this historic building has been used from time to time for life celebrations such as memorial services and weddings. In September 2006 the meeting house was the scene of the kick-off celebration for Porter's bicentennial occurring the following year. The day long festivities included a reenactment of the town's first town meeting with election to all the offices of 200 years ago such as fence viewer and hog reaver, a box lunch was served, a string band provided music and it was a grand day!

Most recently Tanya Wilson and James Denman chose this special place for their wedding on September 17, 2016 and filled the building with family and friends who were impressed by the simple charm of this 182 year old building. Tanya is the daughter of Sylvia and Ken Wilson of Porter. Sylvia is the Treasurer of the Parsonsfield-Porter Historical Society and Tanya learned at an early age to appreciate history and the Old Porter Meeting House.
