Old Yellow Meetinghouse
Upper Freehold Township, Monmouth County


This is one of the superb early churches in the state. It was built by the Baptists in 1737 and has been beautifully restored. The large grounds and cemetery, with the meetinghouse set back amidst these ancient oaks, left me feeling that I saw what members of the congregation in the eighteenth century might have seen. The meetinghouse is located on Yellow Meetinghouse Road, off Route 526 a bit east of Imlaystown (off I195).
