Collingswood, Camden County
before this rather sprawling church was built in the 1890s I would
estimate, Methodist congregations had embraced upscale fashionable
styles in use by other Protestant denominations. This is a good
example—there are the crenellations atop the tower from the Gothic,
the round-arch windows of Georgia, and a large choir window that
is often found in baptist churches.
