All Saints Church - Orange, NJ

In 1876, a mission of St. Mark's Church was started in an old schoolhouse at the corner of Valley Road and Forest Street. In 1885, the name was officially changed to All Saints (Episcopal) Church. Eventually, the parish purchased land and constructed the church we see today. It was dedicated on April 24, 1887, and serves its congregation today under the same name.

The original photo was unfortunately undated, but due to the lack of cars on the street I'd venture to guess it was snapped sometime between 1900 and 1910.

The "now" photo was taken in 2007.
