Chapel of the Holy Innocents, Saint Mary's Hall
Burlington, Burlington County

This unassuming chapel marks the beginning of the English Gothic style as the officially-sanctioned one for Anglican churches. It was designed in 1845 after a specific church in England, for which the architect, William Notman, had measured drawings. The steeply-pitched roof, the transept and the tracery in the choir window are among the features that will soon be standard for Episcopal churches.
