Trinity Baptist Church
Jersey City, Hudson County

Trinity Baptist is a wooden frame building in a city that has few wooden churches remaining, presumably because of fire codes. Its plan is one that is fairly common elsewhere in the state for both Baptist and Methodist congregations—an entry through a tower offset to one corner and a large central window (often called the "choir window"). Trinity is located on Bowers, just a block off Central Avenue. The church was probably built in the 1890s, but perhaps a decade or so earlier.
