Grace Episcopal Church was founded in 1861 by Franklin Babbitt. Under Babbitt's tenacious commitment, the church…More evolved from a classroom in a boarding school to an independent wooden structure on Franklin Street and, finally, to the towering, stone structure that stands today. Today's stone church was built around the wooden church, which now serves as the Sunday School.

Through the Midnight Run program, parishioners donate and make food to deliver to the homeless throughout Westchester, Rockland and New York City.
