Formal organization of the Congregation of the Reformed Church in Niskayuna is estimated to have occurred in 1750. The original Church at Niskayuna was a log building known as the “Gabat House”, or Prayer House, which was erected at the intersection of River and Niskayuna Roads about 1680. This building was also used as a school and meeting house during the week.
In 1760 a new church building was completed at the corner of Rosendale Road and Troy Road. In 1828 this building gave way to another frame structure erected upon the site now occupied by the present church. It was taken down and replaced by the current brick structure in 1852.
