   Photographic Inventory

First Reformed Dutch Church of Bergen Neck
Bayonne, Hudson County


The exceptionally tall steeple on this traditional design is a remarkable survivor; the church was built in 1866 and most tall steeples of that era were long ago blown down, struck by lightning or taken down by a concerned congregation. The congregation was organized in 1828 and the church is listed on the National Register.
