Inscription. Erected in 1813 on farmland purchased from the Campbell and Wortendyke families, the church had thirty-six original members. Dedicated in the Fall of that year by Dominie Stephen Goetschius, the first pastor, who called it a “beautiful and well-proportioned” House of God. Built of local sandstone and timber, the labor was performed by members from Pascack and Saddle River, where a joint pastorate existed until 1854.
