   Photographic Inventory

Waterloo Methodist Episcopal Church
Waterloo Village State Park, Sussex County


It is very fitting that Waterlo Village should have one of the most authentic of the early wood frame churches, as many more visitors will see it than if it has been situated elsewhere in the county.
     The round-top windows with their appropriately shaped shutters are among the more distinctive elements; compare the window-shutter treatments with the Presbyterian Church in Stillwater, built almost 30 years earlier.
