Silliman Memorial Presbyterian Church was a historic Presbyterian church located at Cohoes in Albany County, New York. The complex was built in 1896–1897 and consisted of a church, a church house, and a manse. The Romanesque style church was a square structure constructed of brownstone and brick with an engaged tower at each corner. It featured various gables and turrets on the roof covered in slate. The church house was a 2 12-story, Richardsonian Romanesque–style building. The manse was a 2-story stone residence with a Tudor arch doorway.[2] The complex was demolished in 1998.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979, and it remains listed on the National Register despite no longer being in existence.[1]
