Original Site of the American Congregational
Mission Preaching House

2 Bridges Street

The American Congregational Mission Preaching House (now the China Congregational Church) was founded by American missionary C.R. Hager in 1883. Dr Sun Yat-sen was baptised there in June of the same year and also resided on the third floor of the house from 1884 to 1886 when he was studying at Central School. The preaching house was later relocated and the building was demolished. The site was once home to the Bridges Street Market, which was built in 1953, and will soon be converted into a Hong Kong News-Expo. This historic site is now marked by the Dr Sun Yat-sen Historical Trail. (A memorial plaque can be found on Bridges Street)
