Located in the old village of Eltingville, this mid-nineteenth century rural church is constructed of board-and-batten siding according to the precepts of the prominent landscape architect, Andrew Jackson Downing, who advocated the versatility of wood in the Gothic Revival style. The church, designed by R.M. Upjohn, son of the noted architect, Richard Upjohn, was built in 1863. In 1872, the church was moved to its present site and enlarged. These additions are attributed to Upjohn.
