A hidden gem housing a gem of U.S. history
Mar. 2018 • Family
The draft leading up to the Emancipation Proclamation in Lincoln's handwriting preserved here behind a special protective orange glass. Our friend who lives in D.C. knew about this hidden gem and took us here where we were immediately greeted by I believe a lead pastor. He kindly gave us a tour into the room that housed this document. Lincoln had nice penmanship and to be that close to such an important part of history is amazing! We made a donation to the church as payment for the tour.

Warm, welcoming and incredibly historic
Mar. 2018 • Friends
I visited New York Avenue Presbyterian Church on March 24, 2018. This welcoming, warm, hospitable congregation welcomed marchers from all over who needed a place for a bathroom break, a warm beverage and some cookies. I also learned of its rich heritage and history, and ties to Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln attended here and you can sit in the pew where he sat! Also, the church has a "Lincoln Room" and you can see a draft copy of the Emancipation Proclamation. I believe the church gives tours immediately after Sunday worship. What a wonderful, amazing place. I'll be back!

Beautiful Historic Church

Beautiful historic church in DC where multiple Presidents attended series in king President Lincoln. The hitching post where he tied his horse is still there.

Nice church
Nov. 2014 • Couples
We enjoyed worshipping at New York Ave. Presbyterian Church while spending a weekend in DC. We chose to attend this church because it was Presbyterian and close to our hotel. Wow, we were in for an unexpected treat! After the very nice service the church offered a tour of their beautiful sanctuary. We enjoyed learning of its history, sitting in Abraham Lincoln's pew, seeing the beautiful stained glass windows, and seeing on display President Lincoln's draft of the Emancipation Proclamation.

Well kept secret

This beautiful church is where Abraham Lincoln worshiped. You can still see where he tied up his horse and they have preserved his bench. You can also see a copy of the Emancipation Proclamation here (you may have to ask).
