South Street Presbyterian Church
Morristown, Morris County

 

This large Romanesque Revival building now serves as the parish house after a merger with the First Presbyterian Church; the combined entity is known as the Presbyterian Church of Morristown. This part of the congregation was founded in 1841 by a faction that left the First Presbyterian in a dispute regarded as theological, social and leadership, but which other sources say was over the issue of slavery.
     
This building, erected in 1878, replaced a vaguely Greek Revival building on the site. The architect was J. Cleveland Cady, who also designed the First Presbyterian Church 15 years later.
