At the corner of Nye and Crystal Gades, about two blocks from Government Hill  and one block inland from Main Street, is the St. Thomas Reformed Church, formerly the Dutch Reformed Church. This 1844 church is unique among Charlotte Amalie  structures in that it has survived largely intact since its construction. An imitation Roman temple, the church was built at the height of the classical revival period, with plaster colored and grooved to resemble red sandstone.
The interior reflects the colonial woodwork styles of the period. A unique feature of this building is that it is a lumber core covered by masonry, a building style that has prevented cracks experienced by pure masonry structures during the region’s frequent earthquakes.
