St. John’s of Pleasantville Placed on National Register of Historic Places

A familiar sight since 1853, this local landmark gets the recognition it deserves.

The National Register of Historic Places gained a new addition Friday, Feb. 10 with St. John’s Episcopal Church in Pleasantville. Announced by Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer, the designation will provide opportunities for federal tax credits and other resources to aid in preservation and development.

“I pushed for this designation because St. John’s Episcopal Church remains an iconic symbol of Pleasantville’s history; and this designation will aid in preserving this landmark for generations to come,” Senator Gillibrand said in a press release.

The current building was established in 1914, but St. John’s has been an important part of the community since 1853. In her letter to the National Park Service Director, Senator Gillibrand spoke of the many community programs and original architecture that brands the historic landmark.

Some of the programs include a twelve-step program, homeless outreach efforts, community gardens, and theater groups. The original stained glass and gothic aesthetic depict the building’s beauty that housed the first European royal wedding in the U.S.

“The church is an architectural treasure and remains a beacon for those looking for religious and spiritual guidance,” said Senator Schumer.
