Fairfield Presbyterian (Old Stone) Church
Fairton, Cumberland County


In 1780 this substantial stone building was erected. It is essentially symmetrical, which was common to the georgian style, although this would not be described as a Georgian building. It is simply a large meetinghouse, which is still used for occasional services, but the congregation long since moved into a larger church. The building is surrounded by an extensive cemetery.
