Lower Valley Presbyterian Church
Califon, Hunterdon County


Lower Valley refers to the western section of Long Valley, which was once known as German Valley, and it stretches for many miles, east to west, south of Schooley's Mountain. Although there are Lutheran and Reformed churches in the valley, the Presbyterians appeared to have prospered. The church was founded in 1870 and this classic building erected the following year.
