Congregational Church of Bound Brook
Bound Brook, Somerset County
the few Congregational churches in Somerset county, it was organized
largely by people who left the local Presbyterian church in 1876.
interesting red brick building was erected in that year at a cost of
$13,000. The architect was Charles Graham of Trenton and Elizabeth.
The original building was not red brick,
but a fire in the early 20th century left the exterior somewhat damaged (besides
destroying the tall spire); the solution was to apply a brick veneer to the clapboard.
