30. Witherspoon Street Presbyterian Church

The Witherspoon Street Church at Number 124 is known for the role it has played in working towards social justice. Dating back to 1840, church leaders and members spoke out against slavery, assisted with the Underground Railroad, and later were active in the Civil Rights Movement. The church’s greatest achiever was Rev. Benjamin Anderson, who led the effort to build Princeton's first integrated housing development in the 1950s. Anderson also helped area restaurant and hotel workers to unionize. Today the church’s members remain committed to important social issues.
