South Baptist Church
Newark, Essex County

Now known as the New Point Baptist church, located just off Broad Street on East Kinney, the original Greek Revival outlines of the South Baptist church remain, but "renovations" have much altered the appearance of the building, which was erected in 1850. The architect was John G. Hall ( David Gendell is also listed in the church's application for historic status). The design is a common one in the western part of the state—between 1839 and 1856 there was almost 20 churches built to this design, mostly Reformed.

National Register.
