Top 5 Oldest and Still Standing Churches in the United States

July 14, 2017

Christianity has been a part of American history since the beginning, meaning some of the oldest structures in the US today are churches.  Here are the top five oldest churches that are still standing in the United States today. 

St. Luke’s Church no longer has a congregation but the building is preserved as a US National Historic Landmark.

Old Ship Church gets its name from its ship-like construction due to the fact that its builders were ship carpenters.

The Third Haven Meeting House still has services to this day with worship meetings held on Sunday morning and Wednesday evening.

Old Trinity Church is the oldest church still in continuous use in the United States.

The oldest church still standing in the US is surprisingly not in one of the original colonies but in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
