Pattenburg Methodist Episcopal Church
Union Township, Hunterdon County

The Methodist church in Pattenburg was organized in 1840, but members met in homes and barns in the area until 1853 when this building was erected. It remains very much as it was when it was then except for the belfry, which was enclosed sometime later. At one time there was apparently a Baptist church in the village, but all traces of that had disappeared by the 1880s.
