Roseville Baptist Church

The Roseville Baptist Church was founded October 18, 1871. The 1965 Newark Directory has a listing for the church. By 1969, the church had been demolished for Route 280.

The post card depicts the church in a winter landscape and is postmarked 1908. Harriet, the sender, has informed the recipient that she attends this church in the morning “when I can”.

The dark triangular marks on the corners of the post card are from where the card was mounted in an album. Many photos and post cards survived only because they were in albums and therefore protected from harm.
