First Baptist Church
Keyport, Monmouth County

The First Baptist church is a traditional building—a fine adaptation of the Wren-Gibbs plan popular in the state from the 1860s through the 1880s. This large red brick church was erected in 1860 and appears to have dodged any later renovations or rebuildings. It is in excellent condition, judging by the exterior.
