Fairmount Methodist Episcopal Church
Tewksbury Township, Hunterdon County


Fairmount is not a hamlet but a geographic area, more or less centered on the crossroads where this 1868 church is located. There's another Methodist church a few miles south in Oldwick, one a few miles west in Califon, a Presbyterian church a couple of hundred yards north, and a Reformed church about three miles east in Pottersville, so the area seems to have been well churched. Many of the churches of this period exhibit the Tuscan arch and the inverted V arch in their steeples.
