Union Church ruin
Long Valley, Morris County

These are the ruins of a stone church built in 1774 by a congregation composed of Lutheran and Reformed members. It had a large hole in the roof, to allow smoke to escape, but that was its undoing, as the roof collapsed sometime after the church had been abandoned. The walls appear to be fairly stable, but it would be a shame to lose this early remnant of the German settlers. Long Valley was once known as German Valley.
