Grote Deutsche Presbyterian Church
Paterson, Passaic County

There is an eroded marble stone above the entrance that seems to read "Grote Deutsche Presbyterian" and the rest is too badly effaced. This forlorn church stands a half block from St. Michaels Roman Catholic church and was built of red brick in 1857. It was originally the Ward Street Church.
