Hedding Methodist Episcopal Church
Jersey City, Hudson County

Organized and built in 1855, the church is located on Montgomery between Grove and Barrow. In 1895 is was home to the largest Methodist congregation in the city; it is now home to a Seventh Day Adventist congregation. The building is interesting for the way it adapts architectural elements to a urban environment. The "arcade" beneath the roofline is a very common feature, almost as common as the Gothic windows after the Civil War. Nevertheless, the style of the building certainly does not fit neatly into any of the common classifications.
