The Presbyterian Church of Chatham Township was constructed in 1825 and was converted to a Masonic Temple in 1930. The oldest known brick building in Madison Borough, it is a good example of the Wren-Gibbs form of church architecture.

The 2005 Trust grant helped fund the preparation of a preservation plan, an important document for guiding future preservation efforts at the building. Specifically, the plan addressed structural concerns associated with the foundation.
