   Photographic Inventory

First Presbyterian Church
Tuckerton, Ocean County

Founded in 1859, perhaps one hundred fifty years after the town was founded by Quakers, this interesting building combines some Gothic and Greek Revival elements. Most unusual, is has was appears to be an added aisle on the left side, which presents a "false front." While the siding is now aluminum, the unusual dentils under the eaves appear to be original.
