Reformed Church of Annandale
Clinton Township, Hunterdon County

When this church was built in 1868 the village was named Clinton Junction, an important stop on the Jersey Central railroad where“eighteen passenger trains stop each twenty-four hours and the freight and coal trains are innumerable.” About the half the members came from the Reformed church in Lebanon when this congregation was organized in 1861. The prominent Tuscan arch and pointed arch on the steeple can be found on several other churches erected during the same period; in fact, the basic design can be traced to the Presbyterian church in Westfield, which was copied rather closed by more than a dozen churches in west central Jersey.
