Fourth German Reformed Church of Raritan
Somerville, Somerset County

The faux stone renovation is unfortunate, for the simple lines of this 1879 church are almost an icon for small-town America. Set in a quiet residential neighborhood, this is one of at least six Reformed churches within a few mile radius of the old Dutch parsonage in Somerville. The congregation was organized in 1879.
