Prospect Street Presbyterian Church
Trenton, Mercer County
Founded in 1872 as the Prospect Street Presbyterian church, and built
in 1875. The area was once an affluent part of town, north of the city
center, but changing demographics affected the neighborhood. It is now
the Imani church, and seems to offer a variety of activities and services.
The randomness and sharp angularity of the building marks it as a late,
sophisticated Gothic Revival.
