Creek Bethel Methodist Episcopal
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.
