The congregation was founded in 1708. The first church was built in c.1712 or 1713 but was heavily damaged by 1867 and 1872. The church was rebuilt about 1872 in a Gothic style of fieldstone with stop-ended chamfered red brick trim. The attached Burgh Hall was erected in 1924 in a matching style.
The churchyard contains the graves of several prominent Staten Island families, including a number of Woods, and a prominent mausoleum to the Johnston Family. It is on the outskirts of Historic Richmondtown, Staten Island. One of the earliest rectors, the Rev. Richard Charlton, was the material grandfather of Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first native born citizen of the United States to be canonized by the Roman Catholic Church. The churchyard contains his grave as well as St. Seton's father, brother and sister.
It was designated a New York City landmark in 1967 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2000. The original rectory is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Moore-McMillen House.
