Street Baptist chapel
Bridgeton, Cumberland County
red brick chapel was built the same year (1867) as the adjacent church.
There are significant
similarities in the decorative elements of the two buildings, as
one would expect. Apparently Philadelphia architect Frank Furness
was involved in the design
note of his involvement in the church itself, which I find a bit
curious. The elaborate brackets are typical of the period--usually
called Italianate. The window molds are another typical feature.
