Varick Historical Society

Varick Historical Society

 Sister Geraldine Poole, President

The Varick Church has a great and rich history. Varick is the oldest African America Congregation in New Haven. This year we are celebrating our 195th year of existence. Our Church is the 2nd oldest congregation in the A.M.E. Zion Church and the “Mother Church” of the New England Annual Conference. We want to catalog our history and preserve it and add to it as we grow so that generations to come will know their rich story as they continue the work of advancing the kingdom in their day. This society will work to clarify and add to the rich history of our church and will also work to publish our history.
