Fairmount Methodist Episcopal Church
Tewksbury Township, Hunterdon County
Fairmount is not a hamlet but a geographic area, more or less centered
on the crossroads where this 1868 church is located. There's another
Methodist church a few miles south in Oldwick, one a few miles west
in Califon, a Presbyterian church a couple of hundred yards north, and
a Reformed church about three miles east in Pottersville, so the area
seems to have been well churched. Many of the churches of this period
exhibit the Tuscan arch and the inverted V arch in their steeples.
