   Photographic Inventory

original Methodist Episcopal Church
Mauricetown, Cumberland County

The Methodist society was organized about 1837 and this building was erected in that year. In 1880 when the congregation erected a new and larger church, this building was sold and moved. The accentuated pediment and brackets are the product of a later renovation. It served for a time as the Town Hall.
