This is the Palmyra (Dutch) Reformed Church that is located on Canandaigua Street in Palmyra, New York.    I wasn't able to find much history on this church in my search.
The Reformed Dutch Church was founded from the outgrowth of a mission and was organized August 15, 1887 with thirty-four members.  Service was first held in the Western Presbyterian Church.  They moved to another building until their present church was founded.  I couldn't find a date that the church was built, but you can see from the sign on the front of the church, they are celebrating 125 years. If I did my figuring correct with the 125 years, they were founded 1888 or 1889. Today they changed their name to, Palmyra Reformed Church. 
The pictures show the front, side, sign in front of the church and the sign on the church.  The last picture is of their parsonage.

Good morning Marilyn,
It looks cold in Palmyra! Our part of Wayne County surely has a big Dutch Reform community, particularly in Marion.

Have a great week. Tom The Backroads Traveller

Hello Tom,

It isn't bad today, but will be. If you are still in Hawaii, enjoy it. I found another Reform Church that I didn't know was in another town.

Hope you have a great week, too.

That's a very pretty church, love seeing the ones you are sharing. The parsonage looks like the old Sear Roebuck houses. I grew up in one, but it was slightly smaller than the one you posted, but still had the same exact styling.

Hi Annie,

Thank you for your comments. That's the first time I heard of Sear Roebuck houses. Didn't know that's what you called that style.
