Mullica Hill Baptist Church
Mullica Hill, Gloucester County



This large meetinghouse style church was erected about 1860, I think. It has several of the elements of the south jersey "bank-front" churches: prominent pediment, pilasters, three-bay, two story symmetrical layout. The decorative elements are minimal, but the building was designed to accommodate Sunday school and other meetings on the ground floor, as well as the general auditorium on the second floor.
