9. Winfield Reformed Church is the oldest Taiwanese church in North America

Winfield Reformed Church

Winfield Reformed Church is a Protestant church founded in 1880, making it the oldest Taiwanese church established in North America. The church was originally located on Queens Boulevard and moved to its current location in 1910, with the current building constructed in 1914. The church is named after an adjacent area that was largely incorporated into Woodside.

The church was historically Dutch-speaking, though a large wave of Taiwanese immigrants came in the 1960s, becoming predominantly Taiwanese by 1969. Church pastors have for decades advocated for Taiwanese causes, attending rallies and speaking with the media.
