Wesleyan Methodist Church is a historic Wesleyan church located at Seneca Falls in Seneca County, New York. It was constructed in 1843. All interior features have been removed and three original walls stand.
In 1869 a section of the church broke away and established the First Congregational Church of Seneca Falls. The remaining Wesleyan congregation moved to a new location and sold the church in 1873.
It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980 and now forms part of the Women's Rights National Historic Park. Pews from the First Congregational Church are now installed in the Wesleyan church.
