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!
Street Methodist Episcopal Church
Burlington, Burlington County
The church is of a style common enough
in south Jersey, resembling the Broadway Methodist church in Salem, the Methodist
churches in Belvidere (Warren), Easton (Pennsylvania) and several
others, including the Mt. Pisgah African Methodist Episcopal church in Salem.
The building is essentially unchanged since this photograph was taken,
probably in the 1920s.
