Dutch Reformed Church
This church was built in 1755. The north and west walls of the tower were plastered white to serve as a beacon for people at sea. Every historic building material used on St. Eustatius is incorporated into the walls: Dutch and New England bricks, locally quarried volcanic basalt and Bermuda limestone. Many of the graves in the cemetery date back to the 18th century.
A church for everyone
The church is one of the most ecumenical buildings on St. Eustatius. When members of the Dutch Reformed Church left the island around 1795, Anglican pastors, Methodist preachers and even a Roman Catholic priest held services within these walls. In the meantime there are no more permanent users and the church has fallen into disrepair.
