Built in 1799; the original, Peter Stuyvesant's Dutch Reform chapel on "the Bouwerie," was sited on the same land. Although Peter Stuyvesant, the first governor of New Amsterdam only permitted religious observances of the Dutch Reform Church, records show that forty African slaves and freemen worshipped here during the years of Dutch rule.

Unfortunately, building and building grounds are in need of some tender care, the site does not do justice for the history it represents.
