Fourth Presbyterian Church
Trenton, Mercer County
Founded in 1858, the building has the date, 1859, set in stone above
the main window, although in the History of Burlington and Mercer
County, the construction date is listed as 1860. The church is located
prominently on East State Street, less than a mile from the First Presbyterian.
It is now the Holy Cross Church.
The style is Gothic and the an exceptionally tall
steeple was once mounted atop the major tower.
