Jersey City, Hudson County
Lutheran, or as it is sometimes referred to, the First German Evangelical
Lutheran congregation, was founded in 1874 as a mission of St. Matthews.
The Romanesque manner church has been much altered since it was erected
in 1897 in the at the corner of Communipaw and Woodward Streets. Developers
had confidence in the area known as Lafayette, but it evolved into
manufacturing center and, consequently, a place for lower-middle income
residences, but I understand there is a strong community spirit. The
building now serves a Church of God in Christ congregation.
