Trinity [Episcopal] Church
Vincentown, Burlington County

  

Trinity's congregation was organized in 1867 and built this charming small church in 1872. The style is board-and-batten (now aluminum) and the apse in quite an unusual feature in a church this size. It certainly provides the well-articulated chancel that Ecclesiology precepts call for.
     The church has obviously been painted because it was originally known as "the little brown church in the vale."
