St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Spotswood, New Jersey is one of the oldest churches in the diocese of New Jersey. The parish was organized in 1756, however it has been recorded that Anglican services have been held in Spotswood as early as 1704. A missionary report dated 1758 described the church as a “handsome wooden church in a small village called Spotswood.” By 1848, the church leaders learned that the original building had been deemed unsafe. A new church was built in 1854 and designed by Frank Wills, a noted church architect. The church building underwent extensive alterations in 1896. The chancel was deepened seven feet, enlarged on the south side for the organ chamber, and on the north side for a baptistery. At this time a basement was dug for the heating system. The church also underwent interior renovations. The church was placed on the State and National Registers of Historic Places in 1979. In the early 1990s, the church underwent extensive renovations; the steeple was removed for a period of five years and the exterior woodwork was repaired. Today, the buildings are once again showing signs of age. Rotted wood, peeling paint, water infiltration, and masonry problems plague the buildings. M&M Construction Specialist was contracted to make exterior repairs to masonry, woodwork, doors, and trim around the church and install a new roof on the aging Parish Hall.
