Second Mansfield Presbyterian Church
Rockport, Mansfield Township, Warren County
known as the Rockport Presbyterian church, Honeyman says the building
was erected in 1845, but I suspect the facade, at least, dates to a
somewhat later period. Rockport lies along the route of the Morris Canal,
and this image was made standing on the edge of the old towpath. This
is not a small building, particularly given the dearth of population
in the immediate area. It is a nicely proportioned mid-century church,
marred only by the aluminium siding.
The First Mansfield Presbyterian church
is in Washington.
