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.
