St Mary's Roman Catholic Church
Wharton, Morris County


Architect Jeremiah O'Rourke, who designed several other Catholic churches in the state, built this large stone building in 1872. It is marked by some fine stained glass windows and an exceptional open-timbered roof supports. The congregation was organized in 1845.
