St. Stephen's AME Church
Whitesboro vicinity, Cape May County


On the basis of the foundation, one would conclude that this church was erected in the 20th century, but it might have been built prior to 1900 and moved to this site on Shore Road. The fact that it is one of the few AME churches in the region was persuasive for its inclusion, at least until I find that it definitely belongs to the later century.
