website was created to make available contemporary photographs,
there are too many interesting churches that have disappeared—except
on old albumen prints or in engravings made for pre-1900 books
and magazines. We solicit such images from our readers and will
reproduce at least one every month, along with such historical
information as we can find about these vanished churches.
If you would like to see an image
in your possession on this site, we are pleased to receive your
own scans, or you may send us the photograph and we will create
a high resolution scan and return the image to you with a copy
of the scan and our thanks!
Cold Spring, Cape May County
The photograph was taken in the 1930s or 40s, I assume.
The church was erected in 1823, but there have been some later modifications;
the brackets under the eaves probably date to 1855 or somewhat later.
There is no apparent change in the building since this photo was
