First Methodist Church
Hightstown, Mercer County


The Methodist church in Hightstown is a fairly conventional late 19th century stone Gothic building. What caught my eye was the rear of the church, where some photographically-interesting things were happening in the late afternoon light. I will eventually produce a reasonable image of the front of the church, which was erected in 1898. The congregation was organized in 1786, which makes it one of the earlier Methodist congregations in the state.
