"The growth of the community and church led to the construction of the present church in 1871. The construction cost $60,000 and the church was completed on January 14, 1873...The First Presbyterian Church of Seneca Falls is a wonderful example of Gothic architecture. Like most Gothic churches, the church’s façade is facing east which allows for natural light to flow through the giant rose window and into the nave. The church has two towers which are asymmetrical, typical of Gothic revival style. On the façade’s right, is the church’s tallest tower (originally 166 feet) held up by massive buttresses that end at the belfry. Between the buttresses are window groupings, each set in a pointed arch."
