Embery Methodist Episcopal Church
Collingswood, Camden County

Well 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.
