The congregation was founded in 1708. The first church was built in c.1712 or 1713 but was heavily damaged by 1867 and 1872. The church was rebuilt about 1872 in a Gothic style of fieldstone with stop-ended chamfered red brick trim. The attached Burgh Hall was erected in 1924 in a matching style.[2][3]

It was designated a New York City landmark in 1967 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.[1] The original rectory is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Moore-McMillen House.
