“Among the churches built by early Presbyterian congregations in America, the “Church on the Green” in Bloomfield, NJ, stands out for its urbanistic significance and its architectural integrity. The church remains today the single most identifiable symbol of the Township of Bloomfield.”   ~Mark Alan Hewitt
