First Presbyterian

First Presbyterian

A proud landmark of Elizabeth’s rich colonial history, the Old First Presbyterian Church is the site of the state’s largest colonial burial ground and was known to inspire revolutionary leaders such as William Livingston (New Jersey’s first governor), Abraham Clark (signer of the Declaration of Independence), Elias Boudinot (President of the Continental Congress 1782-1783). Rev. James Caldwell, pastor of the Old First during the Revolutionary War and an active Patriot is buried here alongside his wife Hannah.
