Coldspring Chapel was built in 1833 in the Greek Revival style, on the banks of the Hudson River, in the heart of the Highlands opposite West Point. Coldspring Chapel was established to serve the Irish immigrants who were employment at the West Point Foundry in Cold Spring, and their families. Foundry owner Governor Kemble donated the land and funds.
