St. Stephen’s Port Washington Historic Designation

St. Stephen’s, Port Washington, New York, has been recognized with a Historic Designation plaque from the Cow Neck Peninsula Historical Society; Alan E. Dinn, the parish historian and clerk of the vestry, received the hardware from Ross Lumpkin of the historical society. St. Stephen’s was started as a program of Bible stories and hymn singing for local children in 1891. Within 5 years it was an organized chapel, and in 1905 it became an independent parish. The present church building was completed in 1910 and was enlarged to its present size in 1955. (Jennifer Wilson-Pines)
