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!
Memorial Presbyterian Church
Cedarville, Cumberland County
An Eastern Star Lodge now occupies this former Presbyterian church.
It's a bit like the Episcopal church in Spring Lake, but not as
large or elaborate. I am uncertain about the date of erection; by
stylistic clue I estimate the 1880s. The building was closed as
a church about 1957.
