Historical & Architectural Tour

Gail Crane, a member of the church for more than half a century, and Derek Maddalena, director of facilities, are your guides on this “insider’s” tour of the history and architecture of Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church. Gail traces the history of the congregation from our beginnings in 1808, and points out the distinctive architectural details of the Sanctuary (1875), Kirkland Chapel (1925) and other public spaces. Derek escorts you to the Sanctuary attic and clock tower for a closeup look at the church infrastructure and the 19th-century clockworks still in use today.
