From a village church surrounded by quaint clusters of homes and farms, to an urban oasis in the midst of tireless activity and inspired creativity, St, John’s has been part of Greenwich Village for two centuries, and it hasn’t moved an inch. Built when the nation was just 33 years old and the city was beginning to expand, this sanctuary has witnessed a lot of history.  Join us for a lively discussion on history’s effects inside the church and its mad dash outside. 

With Rev. Mark Erson of St. John’s and Village Preservation’s Director of Research and Preservation Anna Marcum, this panel will explore the last 200 years of what the Church witnessed on its doorstep and within its community. 

The doors to the Church will be open throughout the weekend as the church hosts events celebrating the bicentennial.
