Comments

"The stone chapel, now almost completely covered with its mantle of ivy, was finished and dedicated in the sprint of 1874.... A new church was commenced in 1884, and completed and consecrated free of debt in 1886. It is made of Trenton brownstone, with a square tower at the southwest corner, in which is the main door of entrance. In 1893 the work of building a large addition to the church was undertaken, and the following year was finished. This Sunday-school annex is on the north side of the church. It contains a beautiful, well-lighted and well-ventilated room, 60 by 40 feet in size, having separated rooms for adult and primary classes connected with it by folding and sliding doors. A neat parsonage, built partly of stone and partly of wood, stands on the same lot with the other buildings."
