Locktown Christian church
Locktown, Delaware Township, Hunterdon County

In January 1827 Mrs. Abigal Roberts visited Hunterdon and conducted a series of revival meetings, which “produced great excitement among the people who came out to hear her preach.” She returned in June 1829, with the result that sometime between 1829 and 1832, a group of members of the Milford Christian church which was 8-14 miles from their homes, determined to build a local church, which they did. The present building was erected in 1864 on the site of the original one. The placement of the steeple and the angle at which it is set is very unusual, as are the windowed doors.
     The congregation is now affiliated with the Presbyterian church.
