Frenchtown Baptist church
Frenchtown, Hunterdon County
There were occasional visits by Baptist preachers for at least twenty
years prior to the founding of this church in 1859. Services were initially
held in the Methodist church and later in the Christian church until
this building was completed in 1861.
The steeple is in the Italianate style, topped by a Tuscan arch, which
has been shortened somewhat since 1907. The three small windows on the
front extension are unusual.
