South Dennis Methodist Episcopal Church
South Dennis, Cape May County

This large wooden frame meetinghouse is in sensational condition, a real credit to its congregation. It was erected in 1870 in a rather stylish manner. Notice the double brackets under the pediment, the tall slender windows and shutters, the nicely proportioned belfry, and the little fanlight in the pediment. It's basically a Greek Revival style building with a lot of Italianate details.
