Sandy Ridge Baptist Church
Delaware Township, Hunterdon County

In 1812 the Baptist minister at Flemington was persuaded to spend part of his time preaching on Sunday afternoons and during the winter on weekdays in the Sandy Ridge area, about eight miles south of Flemington. The first church was built near the present site in 1818 and the present church in 1866, at a cost of $5,500. It's a substantial stone structure, 44 x 60, with little ornamentation except for the stained glass windows.
