Emmanuel German Presbyterian Church
Newark, Essex County

Yes, I know—this is really the lighthouse church in Newark's North Ward. When it was built by a German-speaking congregation in 1897, it was the Emmanuel German Presbyterian church. The tower and belfry are the most distinctive elements for this modest-sized frame building.
