   Photographic Inventory

original St Anne’s Catholic church
John Street, Hampton, Hunterdon County




Founded 1859; built 1859; replaced 1866

This residence on John Street was built as the original Catholic church in the northern part of the county to minister to the largely Irish railroad employees who lived in the town when it was called Junction. Prior to this building, services were held in private homes on occasional weekdays. The church was converted to a private residence sometime after the new church, a quarter mile away, was dedicated in 1867.
