It's not the oldest Presbyterian Church in the US (that's in Southampton), but it has to be "the coolest" and among the most interesting architecturally.
Dubbed to have the best Egyptian revival styled facade of any church in the United States, this beautiful 1844 church had a 185-foot tall spire that was blown off in the famous hurricane that devistated the New England coast in 1938. And, while congregants and local historians alike have longed for years to rebuilt its steeple, there are many who think that it's loss was a windfall of sorts; emphasizing the unique Egyptian-style architecture of the main building itself.
Whether you like it "with or without", one thing that we can all agree upon is the tremendous generosity of the church deacons, who have loaned their beautiful sanctuary to a variety of worthy causes over the years.
When you're in Sag Harbor, walk over the Union Street (just off Madison) and have a look at this beautiful functioning church; inside and out. There isn't another one like it in the world. Enjoy!
