   Photographic Inventory

Oak Ridge Presbyterian Church
Oak Ridge, Passiac County

This is an early frame meetinghouse in a manner that can be found all over the state, The “sentry-box” projection to the rear may have been a later addition, as are the large windows on the front of the church, and perhaps the belfry which looks like those erected in the 1850s. But in terms of scale and plan it is quite similar to ones found throughout the western half of the state.
