Church of the Holy Innocents
Hoboken, Hudson County

Holy Innocents was built by the Stevens family in remembrance of a child. Its design is taken from a small parish church in England, as was the Episcopal custom, and the architects were the New York firm of Potter and Vaugh. The church, started in 1871, is not in use, but I hope to get permission to photograph the interior, which, from old photographs, is stunning.
