Seventh Day Baptist Church (original)
Vineland, Cumberland County

The Seventh Day Baptist congregation in the Cohansey area of the county split off from the main body of Baptist settlers about 1737. The Shiloh congregation was organized in 1771 and this building, I am guessing, was probably its second building, built in the 1820s. In the background can be seen a later church, erected in the 1860s.
