Over 200 years as a Church.
The First Presbyterian Church of Romulus New York was Started in 1796 by Rev. Daniel Thatcher and reorganized
in 1802. The first "church" was dedicated on October 22, 1809 (services were held in homes and barns) and the
church was dedicated in February of 1838. This church is still in use today with a fellowship hall and Christian
education wing added to the original sanctuary in 1962. Although the membership is reduced greatly from the past,
it still conducts services every Sunday morning at 11 am. The church is located in the center of the small Finger
Lakes hamlet of Romulus, half way between the two largest lakes (Seneca and Cayuga). The church is recognized by
the four large white pillars overlooking the tree shaded lawn. The sanctuary has a high domed ceiling with a
balcony 3/4 of the way around. The people of the congregation are few in number but are friendly and welcome
visitor to the service.
If you are free some Sunday, come and see our church and after the service visit some of the many wineries around
the area for lunch and a tour. This area, Seneca County, is a beautiful area in the summer and has lots of recreation available.
We have held our 200th celebration and we are now ready to start work on our 300th.
