This property granted for church purposes
by the Lord Proprietors of East Jersey
294 years ago, in the year 1682.

Provision was made in the grant for a
triangle or "gore" for the church.

The first church building, "Old First"
Dutch Reformed Church, was erected in 1683.

August of 1902 became the property of
Sts. Peter and Paul Independent Polish
Catholic Church.
