West Orange, Essex County
construction in New Jersey almost always signifies a nineteenth century
Episcopal church. I suspect the church has been extended in one or
more directions since it was first erected, but the windows on every
side look clearly to be nineteenth century. Note the tops of the
here—an unusual but not a unique configuration. The church
sits on Prospect, across from the golf course and next to an equally
interesting Presbyterian church.
