The Marble Collegiate Church, founded in 1628, is one of the oldest Protestant congregations in North America. The church was built in 1851-1854 on the basis of the project of the architect Samuel A. Warner, following the lines of a neo-Romanesque style with references to the neo-Gothic.
Pastor Norman Vincent Peale made it famous for his Sunday sermons broadcast on the radio and listened to nationwide, so it became known as “America's Hometown Church”.
