Bank Street meetinghouse
Bridgeton, Cumberland County








This large wood-frame meetinghouse was built in 1807-8 but has been modified considerably since then, probably in the 1870s. It was originally a non-denominational meetinghouse, perhaps with emphasis on Methodism.      It was moved from its original location a couple of blocks away in 1835 and fitted up for use as a Sunday School. It was later used as a school, then a business college. Today it houses the Miracle Temple. It sits on Bank Street, just a couple blocks north of the center of town.
