Clinton Protestant Episcopal Church
Clinton, Hunterdon County
Most residents would be surprised to know there was an Episcopal church
in town, since this building has not served that purpose for a hundred
years. It was built in 1836, the year the church was organized, but
the congregation never flourished and the building was sold and used
as a school for many years. It appears on old maps as the Academy, but
that, too, went under, and it is now a multifamily residence.
