Old Dutch Church
What is there now
The original church has been rebuilt several times. The current structure was built in 1852 and the cemetery on the grounds predates it, with the earliest known burial in 1710. The interior stained glass is by Louis Comfort Tiffany. Today, it’s called the Reformed Protestant Dutch Church.
- George Washington visited the church during the Revolution and later wrote a thank-you note that is on display there today. Other presidents who have worshiped at Old Dutch Church over the years were Martin Van Buren, Ulysses S. Grant, and Chester Arthur.
