Green Creek Bethel Methodist Episcopal Church
Green Creek, Cape May County

One of the distinctive features of this nicely-maintained wooden frame church is that it still has the original weatherboards (that's the south Jersey term for clapboard siding). It was erected in the 1880s, I would say, based on the shape of the belfry roof—otherwise the church might have been built anytime after the 1840s. It stands on Route 47.
