Delaware Township, Hunterdon County
In 1848 a fellow named Moore led a number of followers in a split from
the German Baptist Church a few miles away. This plain stucco over stone
building was erected the following year, in 1849, and was known as the
Moorite Church. It is essentially without adornment, although it has
the two front doors characteristic of the period. When I photographed
it several years ago, there was no floor, a couple of the shutters were
barely hanging on, and several of the windows were broken, but a restoration
effort was underway.
