Steeple Building

Location: 17°44’46.58″N 64°42’9.15″W – 1 Company Street.

Built 1750-53 by the Danish West India and Guinea Company as a Lutheran Church, Our Lord of Zebaoth. The original structure was a simple one story rectangular masonry block with a low hipped roof. The existing Georgian steeple, from which the building derives its name, was added 1793-96. The church was vacated by the Lutheran congregation in 1831, at which time it reverted back to the Danish government. The building was greatly altered in 1841-42 when the roof was removed, two walls extended and the other two lowered. The church was restored to its c 1800 appearance by the National Part Service in 1961-65 and is part of the Christiansted National Historic Site.
