Mount Freedom Presbyterian Church
Mount Freedom, Randolph Township, Morris County

This traditional wooden building was put up in 1828, and enlarged in 1867-71. It has an emphasized pediment, which is probably a product of the later construction, but otherwise is about as plain a building as you are likely to find—and in that respect, fairly typical of the early churches in sparsely-settled areas. The congregation was organized in 1820.

National Register.
