Glen Gardner Presbyterian church
Glen Gardner, Hunterdon County


Originally known as Evelyn’s Tavern as early as 1760, then as Sodom soon after 1800, the town of Glen Gardner became Clarksville in 1820 with the establishment of a post office. Shortly after the Civil War the town name was changed to Glen Gardner. The congregation was organized in 1869, when this building was constructed. It served as the Masonic Lodge and currently houses a manufacturing operation. It is one of only three brick churches in the county and had an exceptionally tall steeple when it was first constructed.
