Yellow Frame Presbyterian Church
Yellow Frame, on the boundary between Sussex and Warren Counties

Yellow Frame does not appear to be anything more than a crossroads today, but is has been the site of a Presbyterian church since 1763. There was a large meetinghouse-style church in 1859 on the south side of the road, where the demetary now sits, which was taken down in 1906 or so. According to one source, the current church was erected in 1887, but that is doubtful, in my opinion. Sometime between 1904 and 1907 is the likely date when the current church was erected.

The church is virtually a scaled-up version of the First Baptist church in Washington (Warren County), which was built in 1886.
