The Oldest Church
The red-brick Dutch Reformed Church—now simply the Reformed Church—was built in 1850 and is the oldest surviving non-domestic building in the village. Its design was based on sketches by A.J. Davis (inset), architect of Lyndhust in Tarrytown. The complex also includes a mansard-roofed manse (built perhaps from locally quarried stone) and an 1869 granite chapel. The church's original façade was altered after this 1920s postcard was printed.
La iglesia Holandesa Protestante, construida de ladrillo rojo—en la actualidad solamente Iglesia Protestante—fue construida en 1850 y es el último edificio que queda en el pueblo. Su diseño se basa en un bosquejo de A.J. Davis, architecto de Lyndhurst en Tarrytown. El complejo también incluye una casa para el pastor con un techo-guardilla (tal vez construida con piedra de un cantera local) y una capilla de granito de 1869. La primera fachada de la iglesia fue modificada después de la impresión de esta postal.
