We had a very informative and insightful tour of the Old Stone Church last Saturday thanks to Elder Peter Freeman, Vice President of the Consistory. Prior to the church’s construction, the church’s first ministers traveled on horseback to minister at members’ homes. The church’s front entrance and the first and oldest tombstones are made from local sandstone from the Saddle River. The non-denominational cemetery contains tombstones dating back to the early 1700s.
Fun Fact: The original bell from the church now resides between Bogert and Reynolds school!
