Reformed Church of Rocky Hill
Rocky Hill, Somerset County


The congregation was organized in 1856, the year this board-and-batten church was completed. It has many Gothic elements, including the false buttresses and Gothic windows. The builder/architect was Henry W. Leard, who worked on the restoration of Nassau Hall, a few miles south in Princeton, before taking on this project.
