Quakertown Methodist Episcopal Church
Quakertown, Hunterdon County
Although William Penn owned most of the land in what is now Hunterdon
County, only a single Quaker meetinghouse ever was built in the county.
Franklin Township was the center of the Quaker settlers, and Quakertown
the core of that center. More than one hundred years after its settlement,
the Methodists organized a class here in 1835 and in 1878 built this
traditional wood-frame church with the Queen Anne-style decoration.
