New Jersey Historical MarkersMedford - St. Peters Episcopal Church

in New Jersey Historical Markers

This lovely little board-and-batten building has not held religious services for some years. It was a doctor's office for a time and was converted to a private home. It was built in 1875. Notice that it conforms to some major precepts of Episcopal church-building: a clearly articulated chancel and an east-oriented altar. The entrance is on the north side of the building instead of the preferred south entrance.

New Jersey Historical MarkersMedford - Statton/Braddock House

in New Jersey Historical Markers

Most of the land of what is now Medford Village was owned by two families in l775– the Braddocks and the Branins. This brick residence was built of Flemish Bond brick that year for John Braddock, a tanner, by Isaac Stratton. It was probably built in two sections. The house has a varied pattern, as every other brick has a salt glazed end– of dark green color, very shiny and having the hardness of flint. In l795, Robert Braddock purchased the property.
