Old Dutch Church & Museum

The city's oldest institution, the congregation was organized in 1659. The 1852 Renaissance Revival style church, designed by Minard LaFever is its fourth home. Noted 19th century designer Calvert Vaux called the architecture "ideally perfect." The churchyard contains tombstones dating back to 1770, and the grave of New York's first governor, George Clinton, an Ulster County native.

The steeple bell, tradition says, was cast in Amsterdam in 1794 from molten copper and silver items given by families at baptismal rites.
