A church that preserves an important chapter in our nation's history.

Saint Paul's Church helps to tell the story of the development of colonial society and the road to the American Revolution. It consists of an 18th-century church that was used as a Revolutionary War hospital, a historic cemetery with burial stones dating to 1704 and the remnant of a Village Green that was the site of the Election of 1733 which raised issues of Freedom of Religion and Press.
