Church of the First Born
Jersey City, Hudson County

This squat little church sits at Ocean and Bramhall, across the street from St. Patrick's. It was organized as the Church of the First Born, a non-sectarian congregation, probably not later than the 1870s, which is when I estimate it was built. It is now the Zion Baptist Church.
