First Presbyterian Chapel
Paterson, Passaic County

Immediately to the south of the large First Presbyterian church is this small red brick chapel. I assume it was built in the 1890s, but the false arcade under the eaves could have been done anytime after about 1860. The extended entry vestibule, however, marks it as a later construction, as do the mullions in the stained glass windows
