Evangelical and Reformed German Church
Newark, Essex County

Located at the end of Ferry Street in the Ironbound section of Newark is the church that's been known for years as St. Stephan's United Church of Christ. But it was built as a German Reformed church, designed by George Staehlin, and it combines Catholic and Protestant traditions. The classical pedimented door and the Romanesque window treatment, as well as the large rose window are clearly from Catholic architectural traditions, but the colonial-style steeple might more likely be seen topping a Presbyterian or Baptist church. St. Stephan was founded in ____ and erected in 1874.
