Perth Amboy Houses of Worship

In the late 1950's and early 60's from the 
information I have there were 36 Houses of Worship 
in Perth Amboy.
Many of the Houses of Worship were built in the 
late 1800's and early 1900's. Some of the buildings 
are still around and may have changed congregations and
others are no longer here.
