Facts

  • First Presbyterian, popularly called "Old First Church," is the successor church to the Puritan Congregationalist founders of Newark, who became Presbyterian in 1719. Until the middle of the 19th Century, they controlled local affairs in a unification of town, school, and church.
  • An excellent example of Georgian Colonial architecture, it was built of freestone quarried locally on Bloomfield Avenue, and mortar made from piles of clam shells left by Native Americans on the shores of Newark Bay.
  • It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.
