   Photographic Inventory

Bethel Society of Hanover
East Hanover Township, Morris County

Organized as the Bethel Society of Hanover in 1893, this building was originally a small chapel erected in 1897. Sometime later the chapel was extended and the tower and belfry were added. The lattice-work is unusual, but rather interesting, as is the shape of the tower and belfry. Clearly a vernacular building, but by a builder with a fine sense of style.
     The congregation is now known as the Kitchell Memorial Presbyterian Church.
