Seventh Day Baptist Church
near Marlboro, Cumberland County

The Seventh Day Baptist congregation in the area was organized about 1737 by a group who split off from the main group of Baptist settlers in the Cohansey area. The major body wound up in Shiloh, a few miles away, but in 1811 one group settled west of town. This red frame church sits on a solid stone foundation, which was constructed in 1854. The congregation met there until the upper part of the church was finished in 1861. The church is located on Route 624.
