Bloomfield, Essex County
The photograph cannot fully convey the massiveness of this 1893 stone
building. It includes both Gothic and Romanesque elements, a combination
that the architect, William Halsey Wood, was to use repeatedly. Wood
was born in Newark and designed at least 10 churches in the state,
all of them imaginative. The congregation was formed in 1860. The church
is located on Bloomfield Avenue.
