Presbyterian Church of Manasquan
Manasquan, Monmouth County

A Presbyterian congregation erected this church, which has been altered almost beyond recognition, in 1848, the year they were organized. They left in 1914 and the building was unused for several years, then was taken over by the Holy Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church. The portico and the wings are later additions to the original 36’ x 56’ building, but the tower and steeple may be original. The Presbyterian congregation built a new church a half-dozen blocks away in 1904.
