First Congregational Church
Jersey City, Hudson County

The First Congregational church was organized before 1860, it seems, and the congregation erected this fine building in 1862 at Henderson and York. When the congregation later merged with the South Bergen Reformed church and moved into their large stone building (now the Cotton Temple), this church was sold. Sometime later it was sold again to Our Lady of Czestochowa Catholic Church.
