Organized in 1725 by pioneer Dutch settlers, the congregation of this church has worshipped here over 240 years. First church, built 1735 on this land given by Peter Fauconier, a French Huguenot, was a headquarters of Gen. George Washington in 1778 and 1780. During the American Revolution it was used as a barracks, hospital and prison. Present structure, a model of Dutch Colonial architecture, was completed in 1800 using stones from the original church.
