The Presbyterian Church of Lawrenceville
Lawrenceville, Mercer County

The congregation was organized in 1698, making it one of the older Presbyterian congregations in the state. The church was erected in 1764 and rebuilt in 1833 and 1853. I am uncertain if anything from the original structure remains, but the cupola is very similar to that on the old Episcopal church in Shrewsbury and the pattern of round arch windows over flat/lintels on the lower course was an early Georgian tradition.
