Moravian Church
Egg Harbor City, Atlantic County



A full classical portico on a church is relatively uncommon in New Jersey— there are probably less than two dozen among the surviving 18th and 19th century churches. In any case, it was a later addition, as an early postcard shows a very traditional meetinghouse-style building, erected in 1860. It is one of three old surviving Moravian churches in the state, and the only one that still holds services.
