Saint Stephen's Episcopal Church at Mullica Hill
Mullica Hill, Gloucester County



Founded in 1790, this unusual building was constructed in 1853. It does not observe any of the precepts for an Anglican church constructed after 1845, except that the altar is at the eastern end of the building. The tower\belfry is unique in the state, and seems more suited to a railway station. Nevertheless, interesting and picturesque. In 1879, the tower was added and the interior was partioned to create a sacristy in accordance with Ecclesiology principles.
