Ringoes Kirkpatrick Memorial (Presbyterian) church
Ringoes, East Amwell Township, Hunterdon County

Founded 1866; built 1868

Following the death of Reverend Jacob Kirkpatrick, who had served as pastor of the Amwell Presbyterian churches for 54 years, members of the congregation at Larison’s Corner who resided in Ringoes separated from that church after unsuccessfully trying to get the whole congregation to transfer to Ringoes. This Gothic church with its 120 foot steeple and steeply pitched roof, seats about 300. The founding date is accurate, but the congregations roots really go back into the early part of the 18th century.
