Like the Scale House and Guinea Company Warehouse, the Steeple building evolved. Rather than undertake mostly repairs, in 1831 the Lutherans bought the Dutch Reformed church on King Street. There you can see original furnishings from the Steeple Building: the altar, pulpit, chandeliers, baptismal font, and governor’s box.
The Church of our Lord God of Sabato (the Steeple Building’s official name) has been restored to its ca. 1800 appearance. The yard behind the church was the cemetery for the congregation
