The Reverend Peter Cavanaugh organized the church in 1869 as an independent congregation. Church members met in a one-room house between 38th and 39th on Broadway. As the church grew, the present location was purchased and the house was moved to the site. After losses of church buildings to fire and the 1900 Storm, a one-story building was erected. In 1924 the church was remodeled by raising the building and constructing a new first floor. The new construction gave the building a unique combination of architectural styles.
