Eatontown, Monmouth County
is a basic Greek Revival plan, but the brackets and the
window surrounds are not. Greek Revival style went out of fashion in
New Jersey after 1855, but the plan was a good one for a small church
and so the congregation apparently decided to adapt it, in 1877, with
contemporary brackets attached to the pilasters, pediments over
the windows, and shutters that are much too narrow to be functional.
The congregation was
part of the Shrewsbury Presbyterian church during the earlier
years when services were held in the old schoolhouse.
