   Photographic Inventory

Pleasant Valley Church
Low's Hollow, Lopatcong Township, Warren County

The Historical Sites of Warren County, a book issued by the Board of Chosen Freeholders in 1965, notes the existence of this church, which it claims was then "over 100 years old." That would place its construction to approximately 1860. It was built by local residents as a preaching station (apparently—there is no other information in print that I have found, nor even any notation in the Beers Atlas) for those who found it difficult to travel to Phillipsburg for services.
     It is now a private residence.
