Frankford in Sussex County, Delaware — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Frankford United Methodist Church
In 1880, a new spire was added, and in 1889, the roof was elevated six feet. Leaded stained glass windows were added during this period. They are considered to be fine examples of the American Opalescent style of the late 19th century. An addition was constructed in 1916 and subsequently expanded with the completion of a second story in 1947. A fellowship hall was built in 1967. The earliest legible tombstone inscription in the adjoining cemetery is dated 1868.
Erected 2000 by The Delaware Public Archives. (Marker Number SC-137.)
