First Reformed Church
Jersey City, Hudson County

The first Reformed church built in the city is obviously the Old Bergen Church, but until 1873, what is now Jersey City was composed of the towns of Bergen, Comminpaw, Greenville, Van Voorst Township and Hudson City, as well as the Paulus Hook area that was the core of old Jersey City; so this church on Grand between Warren and Washington was the First Reformed church of Jersey City (Paulus Hook). It was organized in 1825 and built in 1853, and now houses the Russian Orthodox Church of Ste. Peter and Paul.
