Saint Andrew's Church
Bridgeton, Cumberland County

The Episcopal Church did not win many adherents in south Jersey; this congregation was organized by 1860 and built Saint Andrew's Church in 1864. It's not in the center of town, it's not the largest or the most stylish (as is often the case), all of which confirms the struggle to gain acceptance in an area generally hostile to the Anglican church.
