Saint Peter's Church
Clarksboro, Gloucester County

Founded in 1771, Saint Peter's, built in 1845, is one of the last Episcopal churches that followed a traditional Wren-Gibbs plan instead of the English Gothic that became dominant in that year. The design incorporates elements of the Greek Revival in the pediment, pilasters and low-pitched roof.
