Designed by the English-born architect, Joseph Wells, the First Presbyterian Church is said to have been modelled after the Church of Saint Saviour in Bath, England. It was completed in 1846 in this beautiful Gothic Revival style, but using New York's brownstone. Prior to its construction, the First Presbyterian Church, which was first founded in 1716, was located on Wall Street.
