The first Theravada temple ever established in America was founded at All Souls Church, Unitarian in Washington D.C. The year was 1966. Since then many other Buddhist across the country have gotten their starts in Unitarian-Universalist churches. In some cases these are merely rental situations, while in others a deeper, longer-lasting relationship is established between the UU and Buddhist congregations, leading to further interactions after the Buddhists eventually move out and buy their own space. An example of this is the Rissho Koseikai temple in Manhattan, which maintains ties with the Community Church of New York.
