St. Clare's Roman Catholic Church


Florence, Burlington County
Front Street
founded 1874, built 1875-7682

St. Clare's Catholic church, Florence, NJSt. Clare's is a large stone late Gothic church. Its plan is relative spare, with large buttresses on the sides and a modest belfry.

Woodward's correspondent describes it as a wooden structure with a stone basement, so this building must have been erected later.
