First Baptist Church
Hoboken, Hudson County


One of the really fine Romanesque Revival churches in the state, the First Baptist church sits on a prominent corner and dominates its immediate neighborhood—which it was undoubtedly intended to. The church was built to reassert the social position of the Baptist congregation in 1890 in a city that had seen waves of recent immigrants erect impressive churches. The building now houses a Seventh Day Adventist congregation.
