Woodbridge Methodist Episcopal Church
Woodbridge, Middlesex County


The Methodists organized a society by 1832 in Woodbridge and presumably met in homes, barns or schools during their earliest years.
By mid-century they probably erected their first church, and in 1870 this large red brick building was constructed. There are several Romanesque elements, but it would be a stretch to call this a Romanesque building. It is really a mixture of mid-century plans and details woth no dominant character.
