In 1872, thirty-two members of the William Street Baptist Church (now known as First Baptist Church) built this church, using a bequest from Mrs. Elizabeth Coggeshall. Augustus A. Greene, a long-time member of the William Street church was one of the thirty-two; he acquired the County Street land on behalf of the new congregation and supervised construction of the church and of the parsonage next door.
