Beattystown Presbyterian Chapel
Beattystown, Mansfield Township, Warren County
This lovely building was erected by the Presbyterians on Route 57 as
a chapel in 1882. There is a high probability it was built from plans
of J. Cleveland Cady, a major architect of the period. There
is an identical church, Our Savior, in Mandarin, Florida (1884) credited
to Cady, and a duplicate in the Adirondacks. Cady designed at least
six other churches in the state, most of them Presbyterian.
