   Photographic Inventory

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 upscale congregation, with a porte-cochere (carriageway) in the rear.
