Holy Innocents Church
West Orange, Essex County

Board-and-batten construction in New Jersey almost always signifies a nineteenth century Episcopal church. I suspect the church has been extended in one or more directions since it was first erected, but the windows on every side look clearly to be nineteenth century. Note the tops of the triple window here—an unusual but not a unique configuration. The church sits on Prospect, across from the golf course and next to an equally interesting Presbyterian church.
