Inscription.  Known originally as All Saints Church, this building was consecrated by Bishop John Henry Hobart in 1828. The recessed chancel and sanctuary were added in 1848. When All Saints became a chapel of Trinity Church in 1949 its name was changed to St. Augustine’s, perpetuating the title of Trinity’s former chapel and mission house on East Houston Street.
