Beattystown Presbyterian Chapel
Beattystown, Mansfield Township, Warren County

This lovely building was erected by the Presbyterians on Route 57 as a chapel in 1882. There is a high probability it was built from plans of J. Cleveland Cady, a major architect of the period. There is an identical church, Our Savior, in Mandarin, Florida (1884) credited to Cady, and a duplicate in the Adirondacks. Cady designed at least six other churches in the state, most of them Presbyterian.
