Hardystone Presbyterian Church
Hamburg, Sussex County

In spite of the town's German name, the area was settled by English colonists by the 1750s. This congregation was formed near the end of the Revolutionary War, according to one Sussex County history, but another source lists 1819 as the founding date. This interesting stone building was erected in 1869, with an addition in 1879. It is now known as the Hamburg Presbyterian Church.
