Cape May Presbyterian Church
Cape May, Cape May County


This is a fascinating building which now houses, I have been informed, a theater, but which originally was the Cape May Presbyterian church. Erected in 1853, in form it is a simple meetinghouse, but with a number of decorative elements that are distinctive. The window and door surrounds, the pilasters and the cupola are a visual delight.
