Presbyterian Church, Basking Ridge, NJ

Despite its mid-19th century Greek Revival front elevation (hinted at on the far right of this image), the back end of Basking Ridge’s Presbyterian church suggests a later Akron Plan Sunday School was added closer to the turn of the century. I’m guessing at this from this postcard and what I see on the ground through the eyes of google.

The church website suggests an 1839 Greek Revival sanctuary, enlarged in 1869. But then a 1908 addition, which could be that partial octagon at the left.
