Finesville Christian Church
Finesville, Warren County


Finesville straddles the Musconetcong, about half in Hunterdon and half in Warren, but both churches in town lie in Warren county. This building was erected in 1877 by the Christian (Campbellite) portion of the union church congregation that originally consisted of Lutherans, Presbyterians, Methodists, and Christians. That group previously occupied a church at the site of the Methodist church, a block away. When the Methodists in the congregation decided they wanted their own church, they purchased the original building at Mount Joy Road, and the Christian portion of the congregation erected this building. The Lutheran and Presbyterian members of the congregation presumably joined churches in nearby communities.
