The Congregational United Church of Christ, as it is more formally known, has stood on the New Haven Green since 1639. The current Georgian structure dates to 1812. Architect Ithiel Town incorporated large windows into the design to capture sunshine, as there was no heating system. A beautiful Tiffany window, installed in 1890, depicts the Rev John Davenport leading the first service in the new colony. The historic crypt contains the remains of Benedict Arnold's first wife. There is a small burial ground behind the church, where regicide John Dixwell is laid to rest.
The current church was built on top of the land where the original 1660's era church was before it burned. It is larger and covers part of the former graveyard, The basement has preserved headstones from the 1600's & 1700's. Interesting.
The official name of this church is First Church of Christ in New Haven, NOT Congregational United Church of Christ. The United Church of Christ is the denomination to which Center Church (a Congregational Church), established in 1638, belongs.
