St. Paul's Evangelical Lutheran Church
Raritan, Somerset County


This solid stone building is a late nineteenth century Wren-Gibbs plan with several Gothic elements, erected in 1894. I suspect its origins lie in a planbook, as it appears similar to many of the Lutheran (and other denominations as well) churches to be seen through the midwest.
