St. John's Church

Maple Shade, Burlington County
East Linwood Avenue
founded 1889, built 1896

Maple Shade Episcopal


St. John's Church is a smallish brick building set in a residential area of Maple Shade, which used to be called Cheter (I think). The building's architect has obviously tried to make it "Gothic," with Gothic arch windows and a pointed cap to the belfry, but from the exterior this could pass for any number of denominations.

There is a large appendage—a parish hall, I assume—to the rear.
