All Souls NYC:
our history told in timelines


The Unitarian Church of All Souls NYC was founded on November 15th, 1819.  From its humble beginnings in a downtown parlor to its rise as a flagship of Unitarian Universalism, it has been a beacon for liberal religious thinking for more than two centuries. 

Come and join us, and help us to preserve All Soul’s history


We have some interesting projects coming up:

  • Taking care of our amazing art and artifacts, deciding how best to display them in the building to educate the congregation about our history

  • Interviewing long-time members of All Souls, making oral histories, and collecting community stories

  • Studying our digital archives to learn about our history, and organizing more of our records to be digitized

  • Organizing talks like the next Bellows Lecture, and giving tours of our building.


Our members are the heart of the Historical Society

and an integral part of the All Souls story. 

Renew or become a new member of the ASHS
