   Photographic Inventory

First Presbyterian Church
Rahway, Union County



The church was organized about 1741, and this building erected in 1831 in the style of the Third Presbyterian Church of Newark, which was the original name of the church in Bloomfield. There was extensive remodeling in 1876—notice the brackets in the cornice and the curved arch over the entrance.
