Clinton Presbyterian Church
Clinton, Hunterdon County


The Presbyterian congregation in Clinton was formed in 1829 and 35 years later, in 1864, they built this large eclectic-style building. The round arch windows came from the Romanesque Revival, but the towers and brackets and other details are from a variety of sources. There were several subsequent additions with little attempt to maintain a consistency of style, even in the window treatments. But it's an impressive church a couple of blocks from the center of town, amidst a number of large Victorian homes, and still backing up to a cornfield.
