   Photographic Inventory

Westminster Presbyterian Church
Bloomfield, Essex County



This large red sandstone church now serves as the theater for Bloomfield College, which is immediately adjacent. The large open-lattice belfry is distinctive—I have never seen one like it in the state or in photographs from elsewhere. The building was erected in 1890 in a late Romanesque style.
