Frenchtown Baptist church
Frenchtown, Hunterdon County

There were occasional visits by Baptist preachers for at least twenty years prior to the founding of this church in 1859. Services were initially held in the Methodist church and later in the Christian church until this building was completed in 1861.
The steeple is in the Italianate style, topped by a Tuscan arch, which has been shortened somewhat since 1907. The three small windows on the front extension are unusual.
