   Photographic Inventory

Alloway Baptist Church
Alloway Township, Salem County



Organized in 1821 and built in 1866. A large brick meetinghouse with a small cemetery adjacent. It is quite similar in plan to the Lutheran church in Friesburg, built a hundred years earlier.
     A portion of the walls remain from the earlier building, erected from bricks made on the site in 1820.
