congregation in Greenwich is a very early one, founded in 1707. Greenwich
became a relatively important ocean-going port. This red brick building
was erected in 1835 and enlarged in 1860. George Whitefield preached
here in 1740, and on following days in Pilesgrove and then Salem.
The balanced symmetry suggests a Georgian
style, although there are few specific elements that are clearly Georgian, as
we can see in the Pilesgrove church.
There is a substantial burial ground across the
street from the church.
