Our History

For 120 years, Saint Luke's Episcopal Church has continually served as home to a vibrant religious community and countless secular organizations.

We are listed on both the New York and National Register of Historic Places. Both the interior and exterior of the church exhibit a high level of architectural integrity and have been well maintained and preserved to protect the original character of the building.

The Village of Sea Cliff, NY was founded in 1871 as a Methodist camp meeting ground and quickly became a popular vacation retreat for New York City residents due to its scenic waterfront setting and easy access via steamboat and railroad. Saint Luke's Church was built between 1892 and 1894. It is the only original wood frame house of worship remaining in Sea Cliff and is an important representation of the Village’s original late nineteenth century picturesque resort character.
