Palermo Baptist Church
Palermo, Cape May County

Erected in 1853 and repaired in 1889, this white clapboard building is now called the Second Cape May Baptist Church. It is located on South Shore Road (Route 9). It is a smallish meetinghouse with a classical pediment and a Georgian entrance and fanlight in the gable, a combination that is not unusual in south Jersey churches.
