Prospect Street Baptist Church
East Orange, Essex County

Today this is known as the New Hope Baptist Church but when it was built in 1895, at the intersection of Prospect and Norman, it was called the Prospect Street Baptist Church. The congregation was formally organized in the previous year.
     The steep pitch to the roofs of the tower and the nave and the distinctive arcading near the top of the tower are distinctive. Nice condition.
