New Jersey Historical MarkersMedford - St. Peters Episcopal Church

in New Jersey Historical Markers

This lovely little board-and-batten building has not held religious services for some years. It was a doctor's office for a time and was converted to a private home. It was built in 1875. Notice that it conforms to some major precepts of Episcopal church-building: a clearly articulated chancel and an east-oriented altar. The entrance is on the north side of the building instead of the preferred south entrance.
