Bridgeton, Cumberland County
a Presbyterian congregation erected a stylish stone church on West
Commerce street. This small stone chapel was build immediately adjacent
to it, prior to completion of the church. Sometimes the chapel
prceeded the church itself, but in many instances it was added later,
often as a memorial to a significant donor. In this case, I believe
the chapel would have been used for services from 1868 until about
1877 when the main church was finally completed.
