First Presbyterian Church
Succussana, Morris County


Founded in 1768, the original meetinghouse served for a time as an arsenal and hospital for the Continental Army in 1776. Its name was the First Presbyterian Meetinghouse at Suckasunny Plains. This wooden frame meetinghouse was erected in 18--. The entry porch is a later addition, but in other respects, the church appears to be basically unaltered since then.
     Next door is the Eliza Stoddard Memorial Chapel, erected in 1888, which now serves as the church offices.
