Spring Valley Christian Church
Spring Valley, Hardwick Township, Warren County


A hamlet grew up in the 1840s, apparently around a mill and then this Christian church. The congregation flourished for about 35 years; the last service was a funeral in the 1870s.
     The building probably looked much like the Christian churches in Johnsonburg and Little York (Hunterdon County). The stone walls of the stucco-over-stone building have been stabilized, a credit to the Hardwick Township Historical Society responsible for it. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
