   Photographic Inventory

Congregational Church of Bound Brook
Bound Brook, Somerset County

One of the few Congregational churches in Somerset county, it was organized largely by people who left the local Presbyterian church in 1876. This 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.
