   Photographic Inventory

Stockton Methodist Episcopal Church
Stockton, Hunterdon County

Stockton was the site of an early ferry and by the first decades of the 19th century was the center of trade and shipments for the surrounding area. The earliest record of Methodist activity in the village dates to 1868, which is rather late in the area. In that year a lot was purchased one street east of this building, on which the society built a chapel, which served until the present building was built in 1876, on Main street. It’s a wooden frame building with a seating capacity of 300 and now serves as home to a Masonic temple
