Davis Memorial / Wesley Methodist Episcopal Church
Harrison, Hudson County

The Wesley Methodist Episcopal congregation was organized in 1854, and erected this large red brick church in 1875. It is similar in its Romanesque details to the Methodist church in Madison (Morris County). I have no information on the Davis it memorializes, but the Wesley schism from the Methodist church was over the issue of slavery and church governance.
