The Madison Avenue Baptist Church was organized in 1839 and was originally called the Rose Hill Baptist Church. Its first sanctuary was at 154 Lexington Avenue (now the First Moravian Episcopal Church), and its second at 133 Madison Avenue, built in 1858. In 1930 the parish leased its property to be developed into the Roger Williams Hotel at 131 Madison Avenue, designed by Jardine, Hill & Murdock, with a new sanctuary to be included in the 15-story building. The church's parish house, built in 1906, is located around the corner at 30 East 31st Street between Madison Avenue and Park Avenue South.
