Hamilton Square Presbyterian Church
Hamilton Square, Mercer County

The Presbyterian church in Hamilton Square is a large (40 x 60) brick Greek Revival building, erected in 1867. It is the congregation's third church and sits across the street from the burial ground where the original church was sited. It featured a 120 ft steeple, but that was destroyed in a hurricane in 1877 and was not replaced. The 1862 pulpit from the second church was transferred to this building.
     The congregation shared ministers with the Allentown and Dutch Neck churches for years, but large revivals in the 1850s brought in additional members and the church was able to afford its own minister.
