   Photographic Inventory

Grace Methodist Episcopal Church (original)
Dover, Morris County

This was a typical meetinghouse, not very different from the Boonton Reformed church which was erected in Parsippany in 1835, three years earlier. It probably employs the same construction as a barn, and the scale is about the same. There are obviously new windows on the gable end, but the side windows have been covered.
     The building was replaced with a much larger church in 1890.
