Newfoundland Methodist Episcopal Church
Newfoundland, Jefferson Township, Morris County

There is not really much of a town at the place on the map called Newfoundland—it is more of an area than a hamlet and it lies (just barely) in Morris county, backed up to the border with Passaic County. This classic “schoolhouse” type church served Methodists scattered over a wide area for many years following its erection in 1888. The congregation was formed in 1819. The only other congregation in the area is the Presbyterian one in Oak Ridge, a mile or so south of this church.
      The building, painted barn red, is now used for a daycare center; the original congregation erected a new church a bit north of this one.
