- The First Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia has been bringing people together in worship since 1698. Construction on the current building began in 1869. The Church is a spectacular example of Victorian Gothic architecture, which depends on French and English medieval Gothic cathedral motifs and mixed use of materials in the construction. Various parts of the church are built from granite, sand-toned brick, terra cotta and marble. Tiffany windows complete the design, as well as an impressive set of five windows by Wailles of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, England.
