St. Andrew’s Episcopal church
Lambertville, Hunterdon County

founded 1732; built 1891

The congregation of St. Andrew’s is one of the oldest in the county, having been founded by the Society for Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts near Ringoes in 1732. The congregation in that location did not flourish, in part because of unusual rascality on the part of a couple of its priests and the hostility of the locals during the Revolutionary War to a Tory institution. When the original church burned, a successor was erected in Lambertville, only the walls of which remained after a fire gutted it in 1891. This building was erected in that year just two blocks from the previous church.
