Trinity German Evangelical Lutheran Church
Camden, Camden County

Built in 1857, the design of this Gothic Revival building located on Stevens Street between Broadway and 5th in Camden, is in the tradition of St James the Less, built ten years earlier across the river in Philadelphia. A reader of this site recently identified it as the Trinity German Evangelical Lutheran Church, organized in 1857. The bright stone immediately above the entrance that proclaims, in German, this to be a German church, but the rest of the inscription is unreadable.
     There are many churches in the state with a similar plan--a bellcote above a rather narrow nave, with buttresses projecting to the front--including Catholic, Episcopal, and Presbyterian, and done in wood as well as brick and stone.

      The building now houses the New Visions Community Services of Camden.
