Forked River Methodist Episcopal Church
Forked River, Ocean County

The Forked River Methodist church was organized in 1884, and this modest wooden-frame building was erected in 1887. It is a traditional building, with the steep pitch to the roof and the Gothic windows indicating a late nineteenth century design. Salter's History of Ocean County asserts that the congregation held services well in the church well before it was completed.
