This historic Gothic Revival church and cemetery in Garrison, New York was designed by the same architect of New York City’s world-famous, Trinity Church, Richard Upjohn.

The church was originally established in 1770 and a small wooden chapel was built here, at the Four Corners area. During the Revolutionary War, the church became known for its Loyalist associations and as legend has it, a Patriot mob came to burn the church down before George Washington prevented it by standing in the door and shouting “That, sir, is my church!” A stained glass window in the church honors him today.


By 1861, this current church edifice was built by Richard Upjohn, a member of the congregation.
