   Photographic Inventory

Covenant Baptist Church
Lumberton, Burlington County

 

This is a large frame building, something of a cross between the meetinghouse style of the Springfield Presbyterian church in Union county and the brick "bank-front" churches of south Jersey. This building was erected in the 1860s I think, although the cupola looks to be from a later date.
