Seventh Day Baptist Church
Plainfield, Union County


Founded in 1838, this is the congregation's third building and the second on the site. This magnificant Romanesque Revival building was erected in 1890. O.M. Teale was the architect. Both the interior and the exterior are unique in the state, and worth a visit by anyone with the slightest interest in church architecture. Its predecessor, a large Italianate building on an adjacent parcel, was built in 1866.
