St. Paul's Chapel

St. Paul's Chapel is an Episcopal chapel located in Lower Manhattan in New York.

History[]

The chapel was opened in 1766 as an extension of the Trinity Church, which is located further down Broadway. During the Great Fire of New York, St. Paul's was saved from destruction by local firefighters while the Trinity Church was largely destroyed. This made St. Paul's now the oldest churches in Manhattan.[1]

During the American Revolutionary War, the chapel became known for its Loyalist leanings, due to its teachings being a subset of Anglicanism. Church services conducted in the church specifically prayed for King George III and the Royal Family, which made it unpopular to the revolutionaries who occupied the town in 1776.[1]

At the end of the war in 1783, the chapel's politics underwent a major shift after the departure of British troops and became more Patriot-friendly. On his inaugration day as President of the United States, George Washington attended a service at the church, and continued to do so during his stay in the city.[1]
