Saint Paul's Church has served as the center of an historic area since 1665, when the governing body of Eastchester established the congregation. Amidst events of national significance, the church has been a focus for the social and religious activities of its locality.

Restored in 1942 and declared a National Historic Site in 1943, St. Paul's is an enchanting place for families to tour and a valuable educational resource for students of all ages. The Church's facade and bell (manufactured by the same company that produced the Liberty Bell) are in place, as are the graveyard and the magnificent organ built in 1830 by Henry Erben.
