Church United Methodist
Paterson, Passaic County
The current name is curious because in the late nineteenth century a
"Christ Church" was invariably Episcopal. There is very little that is
Episcopal about this design except for the late Victorian Gothic touches.
It is located at 15th Avenue and 29th Street and was probably built in
the 1890s. The use of the light-colored stone and the large windows are
often characteristic of Baptist churches but can be found on Methodist
and Congregation churches as well.
