Arlington Avenue Presbyterian Church
East Orange, Essex County

The Arlington Avenue church is an exceptional example of the shingle style. It was built in 1893 for a congregation organized just a few years earlier, I believe. The shingle style was a derivative of the Romanesque, which can be seen in the massed windows, often over-sized arches, and an attention to the surface texture of the building. George W. Kramer was the architect.
