First Presbyterian Church
Perth Amboy, Middlesex County


Perth Amboy has two old churches that are listed on the National Register and the Presbyterian church could easily be a third. It sits on a large plot on a prominent intersection (Market Street) . It is a large stone building, but the memorable feature are the "steps" along the gable and at the top of the tower. It was built in the 1880s, I surmise; the church's own website tells nothing of its history or of the building.
