Reformed Dutch Church
Three Bridges, Readington Township, Hunterdon County


The mapmakers of Washington’s army labeled this town Sebring’s Ford, after the innkeeper here. The name was changed to Three Bridges about the time of the Civil War. When this church was founded in 1874 and built, there were two railroad stations, a school, a hay-press, a tavern, blacksmith and wheelwright shops and a postoffice. Of those buildings, only the church remains in this quiet little village along the Old York Road. This is the last Reformed church founded in the county and for years shared a minister with the Reformed church in Neshanic (Somerset County) or the Reformed church in Clover Hill.
