Red Bank, Monmouth County
is now stuccoed but I assume this was a wooden frame construction,
erected in 1896. The buttresses are not necessary, and like the belfry
whose bells were no longer used to call parishioners to services,
are simply a churchy symbol. The entrance is fairly elaborate and
I imagine the tower once supported a more imposing steeple. Only
about half the church is shown in this photo, but I don't know if
the extension to the rear is a later addition or original.
