   Photographic Inventory

St Peter's [Episcopal] Church
Medford, Burlington County


This lovely little board-and-batten building has not held religious services for some years. It was a doctor's office for a time and was being converted to another use when I photographed it in the spring of 2001. It was built in 1875.

     Notice that it conforms to some major precepts of Episcopal church-building: a clearly articulated chancel and an east-oriented altar. The entrance is on the north side of the building instead of the preferred south entrance.
