Visiting Saint Paul's Church is a journey back in time with many stories of how the site, and surrounding area, has changed over the years.

Let us lead you back through history!

Saint Paul's Church is located what is currently known as the city of Mount Vernon, New York. The area was originally established as the village of Eastchester in the mid 1660's. The church on these grounds was constructed between 1763 and 1787. Visitors are able to tour both the church and the cemetery, and it is recommended that they view a short, introductory film depicting the history of the site and view exhibits in the museum. Among notable individuals buried in the churchyard are one of the Army surgeons who attended President Lincoln at Ford's Theater, an early silent movie star, and a former slave who served in the Union Army during the American Civil War.

Admission to the site and tours are free of charge. Reservations for group tours, including school groups should be made prior to visiting the site. Pets and firearms are not permitted on the site.
