A Church is Not Merely the Building[edit]

The article is informative and useful, but could better be called "Second Presbyterian Church As Architecture." Is there no information on the congregation or the ministers who served there? Why did the church (not the building) break off from the "original" congregation? ch (talk) 05:16, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

A good point, but in all fairness, the article exists because the church is a landmarked building. It is probable that there would be no article on the congregation if it were located in another building -- that's why there's a focus on the building.

Still, if there's a reliable source for the history of the congregation, feel free to add that information to the article. Beyond My Ken (talk) 00:50, 23 May 2012 (UTC)
