The cornerstone of the temple was laid on July 12, 1853. The meeting was addressed by Rev. Wm. Adams, D.D. The temple was completed about December 1854. In November 1873, Rev. Adams, the pastor of the church, resigned to assume the presidency of the New York Presbyterian Union Seminary. The temple was demolished by October 1906. More: Madison Square in the 19th century
