The interior of the Methodist Church

Verona’s designated local historic landmark, the Verona United Methodist Church, will be the site of the Verona Historical Society meeting on Tuesday, November 13 at 7:30 p.m. The presentation will feature the history of the Verona United Methodist Church—the oldest religious organization in Verona more than 175 years old.

The current edifice was built in 1909 and is a candidate for listing on the New Jersey state and National Registers of Historic Places. It is a beautiful structure trimmed in oak and features stained glass windows, some of which are attributed to Tiffany. The old church bell, which was in the steeple of the original church and dates from 1873, will be rung and some of the early church artifacts will be on display.

During this presentation, Society President Robert L. Williams will also discuss Verona’s historical connection to Walpack Township in Sussex County and the plight of the National Register buildings in the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area that are in danger of being eliminated.
