Sandyston Christian Church [tentative identification]
Peters Valley, Sussex County

This residence may have been the original Sandyston Christian church. Honeyman, following Snell, misidentifies the Christian denomination with the Universalist, and says the Universalist church in the area was formed in 1847 and a church erected in 1848. That date seems about right for this building.
      There is an adjacent burial ground and this building strongly resembles early wood-frame churches in the western part of the state.
