First Presbyterian Church
Paterson, Passaic County

The first Presbyterian church in Paterson is a fairly large red brick building, not kept much in repair at present. It sits on Main Street and is marked by a tall rectangular tower, rather in the Romanesque mode. I could find no cornerstone to indicate the date of its erection, but I assume roughly the 1860s.
