Description

Levitt engaged in Willingboro worship by providing free land to minor and major Protestant faiths, but not to fundamentalist ones, nor Jewish synagogues. This perhaps, was an attempt to form community around expanding parishes and definitively in the idea of formatting visual/religious incentive to purchasers. These two churches are, intentionally then, of the sects not provided free-land, yet still persevered.
