First Methodist Episcopal Church
Dover, Morris County


The first Methodist church in Dover was built in 1838 and this building on Blackwell Street replaced it in 1872. The rusticated stone and round arches are chacteristic of the Romanesque revival style, which was very popular in the period following the Civil War.
