First Baptist Church
Dover, Morris County

The Baptist congregation which built this small vernacular building, now a child care center, was organized in 1892-3 by pastors from Netcong and Dover. The cornerstone identifies 1895 as the date of construction for the First Baptist church. It sits at the corner of Richards Avenue and Union Street.

Thanks to Brianne Kelly-Bly for this information.
