   Photographic Inventory

St James' Church
Hackettstown, Warren County

 

This church has been so beautifully maintained I mistook it for a contemporary building, in spite of its design. In fact, it was built in 1859, the year the congregation was organized. It is a wooden board-and-batten church, very much in the manner of architect Richard Upjohn, who might have been the architect.
