First Baptist Church
Bridgeton, Cumberland County

This large stuccoed building was erected in 1854, but the dome is clearly of a later date, added about 1900. The window surrounds and cornice appear to be original. The architect was Thomas R. Watson, from Philadelphia. Watson also designed the Berean Baptist Tabernacle in Bridgeton, and the Centenary Methodist church in Camden.
