Located on 82 Third Street, Troy, New York stands the former First Baptist Church. On January 2, 2014 our chapter purchased the building and its neighboring schoolhouse to be converted into our present fraternity home. The 24,000 square foot space was renovated from the former First Baptist Church of Troy and Troy Prep School.
A stunning feature of our beautiful sanctuary is the Tiffany stained glass windows that line the walls. Unfortunately, not much other information is known about the windows.
Our former church has a rich history having been first constructed in 1795 and later erected to include its current steeple in 1816.
Most notably amongst its attendants was Samuel Wilson, the man behind America's Uncle Sam, who even served as Trustee from 1807 to 1817. A sign outside even claims that E. & S. Wilson supplied brick that was used to build our home.
