St. Paul's Episcopal Church
Camden, Camden County
St. Paul's was organized in 1830 and the congregation built their first
church four years later. In 1856 they engaged William Notman, an approved
architect of the New York Ecclesiology Society, to enlarge the church,
although other records have Gideon V. Stivers, a vestreyman of the
church and former Mayor of Camden, as architect.
In 1910 a new front was added, which
I regard as very ugly, so I did not photograph it. The architects for
that desecration were Moffet, Steward and Frost. This view through one
of the gates and arches shows a portion of the old church.
