Berlin Presbyterian Church
Berlin, Camden County

The former Berlin Presbyterian church, erected in 1868, was purchased perhaps twenty years ago for a Hindu temple. The congregation has transformed the exterior in a manner that makes its purpose unmistakable, and frankly rather startling to a passerby accustomed to seeing only traditional Protestant churches in this area. The original portion of the building does not seem material different from the town's Methodist church, erected ten years earlier.
     There was also a chapel in or near the Berlin cemetery on Clementon Road that the Presbyterians used, but that building has apparently disappeared.
