On June 1, 1863 the Third Presbyterian Church of Pittsburgh was destroyed by a fire. Exactly 3 years later, the cornerstone of the new building was laid, and the finished building was dedicated on November 29, 1868. Riddle, who had been pastor of the church from 1833 to 1857, delivered a “Historical Address” to mark the occasion. The address, along with a “dedicatory prayer” and a sermon by Herrick Johnson, pastor from 1862 to 1867, was published in Dedicatory Services of the New Edifice of the Third Presbyterian Church, of Pittsburgh, Penn'a: With Some Account of the History of the Church from its Organization, together with a Full Description of the Present Building, and its Appointments (Pittsburgh: W.G. Johnston, 1869).
