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 out thanks! If you have a number of such vintage
images, we may be able to bring our scanner to your site.
Old Bergen [Dutch Reformed] Church
The church is white now, but otherwise it does not appear to have
changed much since this photograph was taken.
