Historic Spotswood, NJ Rectory, 1876
Rectory, 2012 – in need of historic preservation!

We recently took a look at the 1854 St. Peter’s Episcopal Church and 1872 Rectory building in Spotswood, NJ. It is a great site and is in need of both restoration and repair. The congregation would like to restore the 1872 rectory to is original appearance. It is currently covered with aluminum siding and all of its original gingerbread has been removed. The church building’s exterior was repaired roughly twenty years ago but now shows signs of deterioration. 

Our preliminary work included an analysis of all the areas of the buildings that were noted as being primary concerns by church officials. Our staff historian then researched the site, its buildings, and found relevant maps and photos of the property. We then presented a report to the Church which includes current assessments and recommendations for this wonderful historic structure.
