Great Meadows Presbyterian Church
Great Meadows, Independence Township, Warren County
large (by local standards) stone building now serves as a Senior
Center, but it was built in 1824 and remodeled in 1863 by the local
Presbyterian congregation, which then called itself the Danville
Presbyterian Church, organized in 1831. It once served an Eastern
Orthodox congregation and had the characteristic onion dome where
a steeple would have been.
The style is a simple meetinghouse,
but the windows and cornice are nicely executed. It once
and/or belfry, and was stuccoed.
