First Methodist Episcopal Church
Branchville, Sussex County

Methodist were organized by 1820 in Branchville, but held services with others in a union church until deciding to build their own in 1864. The frame of that church blew down before it was completed, and it took the congregation another 24 years to begin again. This building was erected in 1878.
