Inscription. Organized March 1, 1848 and incorporated April 10, 1848 in Piermont, the church, the oldest Episcopal congregation in Rockland County, first held services in the Lime Kiln Building, Piermont, purchased from Eleazor Lord (1788-1871).The present building was erected, to the glory of God, in 1864 under the rectorship of the Rev. Solomon G. Hitchcock (1814-1877), who served the congregation from 1849 until his death. Plans for Christ Church were freely given by the Rev. Charles Babcock (1829-1913), preeminent 19th century Gothic Revival architect, a founding member of the American Institute of Architects and first professor of architecture at Cornell University. Christ Church was placed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places in 2011.
