Clinton Avenue Reformed Church
Newark, Essex County

This fine church on the edge of Lincoln Park was built following the merger of the Clinton Avenue Reformed congregation with the much older First Reformed church. Although it appears in many records as the First Reformed church, chiseled above the main entrance is "Clinton Avenue Reformed Church."
      It was built in 1870, but no longer serves a Reformed congregation. It is now the Iglesia Roca de Salvacion. It's a late Gothic Revival building and the architect was Thomas Roberts, who also designed the Central Presbyterian church in Orange
