First Presbyterian Church
Millville, Cumberland County
This interesting late Romanesque-Gothic hybrid church was erected in
1891, on a large city block between the Methodist and Baptist churches.
It has Gothic arches, multiple gables, buttresses and the gargoyles
from the Gothic, mixed with the round arches and rusticated stone and
timber characteristic of much of the Romanesque.
The congregation was
organized by 1837. It was obviously designed for an
a porte-cochere (carriageway)
in the rear.
