   Photographic Inventory

Wrightstown Methodist Episcopal Church
Wrightstown, Burlington County

When I visited this church in the late 1990s the owner was working on the renovation as a residence. The congregation was organized in 1795 and the building, the second for the churhch, erected in 1836. I suspect the entry vestibule is a later addition, but in the dimensions and scale of the building one can see a large church that was fairly representative of what might be erected by an aspiring Methodist congregation in that period.
