Springdale Protestant Methodist Church
Warren Township, Somerset County


It is increasingly rare to find an early wooden church that has not been encased in aluminum, but this modest, but charming church, located on Washington Valley Road, appears untouched since it was built, sometime before 1858. The original congregation was Protestant Methodist (there are only a few in the state), but they deeded the building to the Methodist church in 1858.
