German Presbyterian Church
South River, Middlesex County


There was no cornerstone for this interesting church, which I assume was built in the 1880s. It adapts elements from several styles, but with some naiveté so we would probably be justified in calling this a vernacular church.
Based on an old postcard, it appears that the building was originally the German Presbyterian Church.
