German Evangelical Lutheran Church
Trenton, Mercer County

This large red brick church occupies a prominent corner at Broad and Market. It was founded in 1851, probably to serve the German workers who came to work in the iron mills established about that time. The original edifice was torn down and rebuilt in 1877. It is now known as the Redeemer Lutheran Church.
     It is a traditional post Civil War design, similar to churches all over the country, but it is considerably larger than most built to this plan.
