St Joseph's Catholic Church
Bound Brook, Somerset County

This is the second Catholic church built by the congregation, which was organized about 1863; erected in 1890, it succeeds their first building on Mountain avenue. It follows the design of Boonton's Mt. Carmel Catholic church in Boonton, which is credited to Jeremiah O'Roarke, but which clearly follows a design of Richard Upjohn. Compare it also to St. Joseph's church in High Bridge, for a similar design, executed in wood.
