Cold Spring Presbyterian Church

The Cold Spring Presbyterian Church, located on U.S. Route 9 in Cold Spring, New Jersey, is a historic two-story church on the National Register of Historic Places. The church itself, known as Old Brick, was built in 1823 by Thomas Hughes, also the architect of Congress Hall, however an earlier log meetinghouse was erected there in 1718. The church's cemetery is the site of a 1742 grave (that of Sarah Eldridge Spicer) and the most Mayflower descendants anywhere outside Massachusetts.
