   Photographic Inventory

Christian Reformed Church, Pittstown Chapel
Pittstown, Union Township, Hunterdon County

Although the building clearly was built as a church, there is some doubt whether it ever held services. There is no mention of it in Snell, but Beers’ 1876 map shows a school at this site. The 1940 WPA survey of churches in the county lists it as the Pittstown Chapel of the Christian Reformed Church. One local historian described it as a choir school and Sunday school, but perhaps never a church with a congregation. It was built about 1880 and now serves as a private residence.
