Marble Collegiate Church, located at Fifth Avenue and 29th Street, traces its history back to the city’s first church, a Reformed congregation established by Dutch colonists in 1628. Completed in 1854 to the design of Samuel A. Warner, the Early Romanesque Revival building is clad entirely in Tuckahoe marble and has Gothic trim and a Wren-like steeple. The church has had a number of famous preachers, most prominent among them the Reverend Norman Vincent Peale.
