Haines Neck Methodist Episcopal Church
Haines Neck, Mannington Township, Salem County
Haines Neck Road
founded c.1826, built 1889-91
Land was deeded to the trustees of the Methodist Episcopal Church of Mannington in 1826, and the first church was erected shortly thereafter. Cushing says the organization and building of a small church happened in 1832, and mentions the names of eight families, including a local preacher, Joseph Jaquett. This building was put up in 1889-91, according to Stanger. The building was jacked up in 1927 and a basement excavated, presumably for Sunday school and other meetings. The modest belfry was removed after 1960.
