Harmony Hill Methodist Episcopal Church
Stillwater Township, Sussex County

The congregation was organized in 1802, which is exceptionally early for a Methodist church in this part of the state. It was attached to the Flanders Circuit, a large one that required a journey of 400 miles to visit all. The ministers preached from eight to ten times a week. Until 1832 or 1833, meetings were held in private homes, when this stone building was erected at a cost of $1,300. The wooden frame tower and belfry were added in 1907.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
