St. Ann's Church, also known as St. Ann's Church of Morrisania, is a historic Episcopal church in the South Bronx, New York City.

History[edit]

It was built in 1840 and donated by Gouverneur Morris Jr. (1813-1888) as a family monument, the Morrisania Memorial. It is a fieldstone building in the Gothic Revival style with a vernacular Greek Revival style tower. The complex includes the stone parish house added in 1916, late-19th century Sunday School and gymnasium building, and a graveyard that includes the Morris family crypt. Among those whose remains are in the graveyard or crypt are Gouverneur Morris (1752–1816), Lewis Morris (1671–1746), and Lewis Morris (1726–1798).[3]

The complex was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[2] It was designated a New York City landmark in 1967.
