   Photographic Inventory

Church of the Advent
Trenton, Mercer County

There were no identifying signs on this interesting red brick building on South Broad Street at Malone, but I subsequently learned from Timothy Griscom, an expert on the Methodist Episcopal churches of the region, that it was built as a German Lutheran church in 1889-90. That congregation organized a year earlier and met in the Chambersburg Borough Hall until their building was complete.
     The building was being painted when I shot this in October 2001. Although the front and sides are fairly conventional, the design of the tower is fresh.
