   Photographic Inventory

Allentown Baptist Church
Allentown, Upper Freehold Township, Monmouth County



This fine building now serves as Allentown's library, but it was the Baptist church when it was built in 1879. There is an eclectic mix of elements from different periods here, but they work. The pilasters are Greek Revival, the belfry is characteristic of early Gothic, and the round arch windows are Romanesque.
