   Photographic Inventory

First Methodist Episcopal Church
Camden, Camden County

The Methodist church in Camden was organized in 1809, so I suspect this was the congregation's second or third building. It was built in 1892 and is now occupied by the Cooper Health Systems. There are several Gothic Revival elements and several Romanesque elements.
     This is the second of two large Methodist churches in the city that folded; it seems that Methodism took largely in the villages and hamlets of this state where it got its start.
