The Universal Church

April 30th, 2015

Completed in 1910, this was originally the United Presbyterian Church, known as the "Open Church". The Presbyterians held onto to the place for just over a century before selling it to the Universal Church in 2011.

In 1928, the Brooklyn Daily Eagle ran an article about a Tom Thumb wedding that was held here, saying "It is doubtful if so many 'notables' ever gathered under one roof as last night were 'seen' at the 'wedding' of 'Jennie June' and 'Tom Thumb.' "
