Delaware Presbyterian Church
Delaware Station, Warren County

Delaware Station was a refueling stop for the railroads when this church was built in 1873. The congregation is a daughter of the Presbyterian church in Knowlton, a half dozen miles away, which was started in 1775.
      The siding is aluminum now, but the steeple is very fine. The lancet windows are unusually skinny for a Protestant church, which usually wanted to let in maximum light; they provide a decided sense of height and of the Gothic tradition.
     Across the street sits another splendid country church, St. James Episcopal, also in the Gothic mode.
