Quinton Baptist Church


Quinton, Lower Alloway Township, Salem County
Route 49
founded 1889, built 1889-90

The small belfry that once graced the church is gone, but in other respects the Baptist church in Quinton does not seem to have changed in the last 50 years. It was started as a Sunday school in 1876, according to Jaquett, with monthly services on Sunday afternoon conducted by preachers from Salem. By 1889 the congregation had formally organized and this building was completed in 1890.
