The Pullman Memorial Universalist Church of Albion, New York was constructed and dedicated in 1894 as a memorial to the parents of inventor and industrialist George Mortimer Pullman.

The structure, built of red Medina sandstone and featuring fifty-six Tiffany stained glass windows and a Johnson pipe organ, is in the Orleans County Courthouse National Historic District.

The building has been in constant use since its opening; the congregation affiliating with the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1961 but keeping its historic name.

Gretchen's ancestor, John Murray (1741–1815) is the founder of the Universalist denomination in the United States, which merged with the Unitarian church in 1961 to become current day Unitarian Universalism. Beatrix Potter was a British Unitarian.
