Dennisville Methodist Episcopal Church
Dennisville, Cape May County

Like its counterpart in South Dennis, this large wooden frame meetinghouse is in sensational condition. The congregation was organized in 1869 and the follwing year built this fine wooden frame church. It is very similar to the Methodist church in South Dennis, including the identical brackets under the eaves. In fact, except for the tall steeple and the interrupted return on the pediment here, and the absence of the shutters found on the other building, these could almost be twins. That is strong evidence they were erected by the same contractor-builder.
