Palisades Avenue Presbyterian Church
Union City, Hudson County

There are surprisingly few Presbyterian churches in Hudson County—only 10 in Jersey City, one in Hoboken, one in Kearney, and this one in Union City. There may be others that I have not gotten to yet, but for a denomination that is so common elsewhere in the state, the total is something of a surprise. This small wooden frame church is located a block off Ellsworth Park. The entry vestibule is probably a later addition to the church, which I guess was built in the 1880s or 90s.
