The Third Presbyterian church was formed in 1824 when members of the First Presbyterian church argued over who was to be pastor.  The members of the congregation who were opposed to Rev. William T. Hamilton, split and built the Third Presbyterian church at 382 1/2 Broad Street near Lincoln Park.  The foundation stones for this church came from the never completed Presbyterian Church on the southern side of Lincoln Park.  The church was dedicated on February 24, 1825.  A vote was taken in 1912 to abandon the church as a place of worship in June, 1914.  The organization was to continue by forming a collegiate system to embrace several invited churches.  The cornerstone of this new church was laid on June 15, 1913.  The Clinton Avenue Presbyterian Church agreed, in 1912, to join this system.  The name of the new church would be the Third Church, South.   The new church was completed in June, 1913.  In 1914, the old church was officially abandoned and in 1916, it was razed and stores were erected.
