Little York Christian Church
Little York, Alexandria Township, Hunterdon County

   

The Christian Church, which arose in the early decades of the 19th century in upstate New York and western Pennsylvania, was active in the western part of New Jersey from the 1820s to just before the Civil War. This church, a daughter of one in Milford, was organized in 1842, and erected in 1844. It is constructed of stucco over stone and now serves as a storage barn.
     Most of the Christian churches in the state are unadorned meetinghouse-style buildings lie this, although a couple in Sussex County adopted the Greek Revival style.
