Methodist Episcopal Church
Tansboro, Camden County
did not expect to find a church in the hamlet of Tansboro, but the
nineteenth century Methodists were nothing if not industrious. This
small frame building was erected about 1857, according to Prowell's
History of Camden County, although by its appearance I would have
estimated a date closer to the 1890s.
