Freehold First Presbyterian Church
Freehold, Monmouth County

I probably did not do justice to the nice lines of this Romanesque Revival church, erected in 1873. It occupies a prominent location, not far from the Baptist and Reformed churches. It was organized in 1835, which would normally be quite late for a Presbyterian congregation in Monmouth, but the Old Tennent church lies only a couple of miles away, and it undoubtedly was the favored place until the congregation outgrew it.
