original Eldora Methodist Episcopal Church
Eldora, Cape May County

The Methodist congregation in Eldora was organized in 1860 and built their first church in the same year. This is a simple meetinghouse with little adornment, and not dissimilar from a county schoolhouse or residence. It can be found across the road from the larger, more stylish church that replaced it in 1883, just off Route 550
