St. Luke's Reformed Episcopal Church


New Providence, Union County
Central Avenue
founded 1889, built 1891

St LukesSt. Lukes was started with a small building in what was a rural district nestled in the Watchung hills. Expansion in the early 20th century added the bell tower, a relocation of the entrance and a remodeled interior. The original portion of the building is the small gable-fronted section; the Gothivc arch choir window is where the original entrance was located. An entrance through a corner tower is a feature that was very popular in the last quarter of the 19th century.
