   Photographic Inventory

McCrea Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church
Port Murray, Warren County

The hamlet of Port Murray hosts two interesting 19th century churches, one of which is this fine 1895 frame building. The tower, triple windows, stained glass, and fish scale shingles are all characteristic of the period.
      Port Murray is well inland, as you might expect, but got its name from the fact that it was a port on the Morris canal.
