First Baptist Church
Trenton, Mercer County

Although a Baptist preacher had visited the area regularly since 1787, the first Baptist congregation in Trenton was not formally organized until 1805. It was the 30th Baptist congregation organized in the state. This building was erected at Centre Street and Bridge in 1859. It once had an elaborate belfry and very tall spire.
