First Methodist Episcopal Church
Mays Landing, Atlantic County

The Methodist congregation here was organized in 1820, two decades before the Presbyterians, but this fine Gothic Revival building, erected in 1888, is overshadowed by the nearly adjacent Presbyterian church. The building was enlarged in 1906. The design is almost certainly by Philadelphia architect Benjamin D. Price, as it appears to be taken from plan #220 of Price's book, Church Plans.
