The society was originally located at 310 West 139th Street in a Romaneque sanctuary designed by Joseph Ireland and built from 1892-93. From 1905-1923 that building was home to the Swedish Immanuel Congregation Church, and since 1923 has been occupied by the Grace Congregational Church of Harlem.<br> In 1905, the congregation moved to a new church built from 1904-05 at 409 West 141st Street at St. Nicholas Avenue. Valentine &amp; Ludlow designed the towered Gothic edifice that overlooked St. Nicholas Park and the City College of New York. At that time the congregation changed its name to St. Nicholas Avenue Presbyterian Church. In 1927, the congregation merged into the North Presbyterian Church at 529 West 155th Street, and the old edifice was sold to St. James Presbyterian Church.
