   Warren County

These are most of the survivng churches of Warren County. It will be, as far as I am able to determine, a complete inventory of the remaining churches built in the county before 1900 as soon as I am able to post the several others I have photographed and researched.

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.
