Sandbrook Church
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.
