   Photographic Inventory

Second German Presbyterian Church
Newark, Essex County



This substantial red brick building was erected in 1866 by the congregation which had been organized six years earlier. It is located on Sussex Avenue and is home to a very large (8,000 people I was told) congregation known as the New Hope Baptist Church. There was a substantial addition in the 1980s, but the facade appears substantially unaltered since 1866.
