Rosemont Methodist Episcopal Church
Delaware Township, Hunterdon County

Like many of the churches in the county, this congregation was was formed (in 1859) when members of another church desired a place of worship closer to their homes. Rosemont is three miles from Stockton, all uphill. The church was erected in 1860, but has been used as a residence for many years.
      The village at one time (c. 1880) also had a Presbyterian church, which appears on maps to be next door to this building, but Snell does not list it in his 1881 History of the county..
