The Church of the
German Reformed Congregation
of Germantown
was erected on this site in 1733.

Here Count Zinzendorf preached his first
sermon in America December 31, 1741

Here the British Army quartered a Virginia
Battalion captured in the Battle of Germantown.

Here George Washington worshiped when
President of the United States and while
a resident of Germantown.

The old building was replaced in 1839 by one
which made way for the present structure in 1888.

In 1856 the Congregation united with
the Fourth Presbytery of Phildelphia
as the Market Square Presbyterian Church.
