   Photographic Inventory

First Presbyterian Church
Pennington, Mercer County



Founded in 1709 and built in 1874. The church combines several Romanesque and Gothic Revival elements and so might be called "eclectic." Notice, particularly, the shape of the arch above the central entrance—common in Victorian England but not so common in New Jersey.
