Second Mansfield Presbyterian Church
Rockport, Mansfield Township, Warren County

Now 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.
