Columbus Methodist Episcopal Church
Columbus, Burlington County

Methodists organized a class in Columbus in 1817, but this building, according to Woodward & Hageman's History, was erected in 1857. I suspect that book which was published in 1883, came out before this building was erected, or else it had a substantial facelift, as the style is typical of the late nineteenth century.
