Church of the Assumption
Morristown, Morris County



This fine Roman Catholic church is the oldest religious building in Morristown, erected in 1872. I understand that portions of it burned sometime in this century; if so, the restoration seems to have been carried out with respect for historical authenticity. The parish was organized in 1848, although there were Catholic services in the area as early as 1743. The architect was L. J. O'Connor. It is built of red brick, with Ohio sandstone trim.
