The First Presbyterian Church at the corner of West Main and Church St., Stony Point held its last service on Christmas Eve 2017, parishioners informed the Rockland County Times. The “Presbytery” conducted a final closing service on Sunday, January 7, 2018.

One former member of the congregation said, “The church has a fascinating religious past. This church was a central and integral factor in contributing to Stony Point’s history.”

The original stone church was built in 1904. In recent years the structure was easily recognizable by its two purple doors facing Main St.

The stone church stood across the street from the original Stony Point High School. It is just down the road from the Stony Point Center, a multi-faith retreat and think-thank sponsored associated with the Presbyterian Church.
