Sharptown Methodist Episcopal Church
Sharptown, Pilesgrove Township, Salem County

This Methodist church is a daughter church of the Old Pilesgrove Methodist congregation, which had been organized about 1795. A decision was made in 1831 to build a new church in Sharptown, and two years later this brick meetinghouse was erected. In the cemetery lies a small stone with an inscription "to the memory of my only daughter."
