These are the Sussex County churches that have been photographed and are included on the

Churches in boldface are either listed on the National Register or are otherwise of special interest.
If the name of the church is in brackets [ ] I am in doubt as to the founding congregation. The Sect
is the original religious denomination when the church was built. Fields left blank are those for
which I have no solid information.
