Emanuel Baptist Church
Newark, Essex County

This is an interesting building—the half-timbered exterior gives it a Tudor look, but the corner entrance and side-facing entry ramps (which may be a later addition) have nothing Tudor about them. The building was erected in 1895 and is now (2002) occupied by an Assembly of God congregation—the Eben-ezer Temple, a name which I suppose has some ecclesiastical meaning.
