St. Barnabas Episcopal Church
Newark, Essex County

This is a fascinating building, built in the shape of a Latin cross (the nave and the transept are of equal length) in 1864. The architect was Thomas Roberts, who designed the Clinton Avenue Reformed church and the Central Presbyterian church in Orange. The transepts were added in 1869 and the porch in 1913. It is located on West Market at Sussex in the Roseville area of Newark. The interior has been modified only slightly; the terrazzo floor and fluorescent lighting are new, but the roof beams and dark wood ceiling are original.
