Como Methodist Episcopal Church
Como, Monmouth County

Como, or Lake Como as it is termed by Ellis, is a 240 acre section adjacent to Spring Lake. In the early 1880s it was graded and laid out for residential lots. This large frame building is scaled appropriately for its immediate neighborhood. Although I found no cornerstone I estimate that it was built in the 1880s. The entry vestibule is obviously new, and the square tower
once served as the base for a belfry or steeple of some sort.
