When was the first Mikva built in the USA?

Don't know if this is the first one, but:

In the earliest days, the women of Shearith Israel made use of a natural spring near the synagogue for these ritual purposes. By 1759 Shearith Israel built a mikvah on its grounds, adjacent to the Mill Street synagogue.
