St. Mary's Church of the Assumption
Hackettstown, Warren County

One would be hard put to identify this nondescript building as a former catholic church, but that is what it was. It was erected in 1864 by a parish organized ten years earlier. It served the parish until 1923 when a much larger and more stylish building was erected on High Street. The building was sold to the Knights of Columbus, and every vestige of its former use has been eradicated.
