Church of the Holy Trinity
Spring Lake, Monmouth County

This is a lovely building, and apparently a favorite for weddings, as there were advanced preparations for such on two of the three visits I made to the church. The design is based on Richard Upjohn's early simple plan for country churches, but the local builder rejected the board-and-batten construction and the corner buttresses of Upjohn, and added several then popular features, including the brackets under the eaves and window mouldings.

National Register.
