Trinity Methodist Episcopal Church
Bridgeton, Cumberland County












The building is a fascinating combination of elements from different architectural traditions, particularly in one that was erected in 1850. I would have guessed it had been built much later. It clearly was influenced by Philadelphia architectural traditions, and most likely is the product of a Philadelphia architect.
