St Stephen's [Episcopal] Church
Millburn, Essex County


St Stephen's, designed by New York architect John Weller Priest, a leading member of the New York Ecclesiology Society, was erected in 1860. The congregation was organized in 1851. The style is a form of Gothic Revival called board-and-batten, popularized by Richard Upjohn. The interior is dominated by the open wooden framing of the roof support, a characteristic element of the Gothic Revival movement.

See James Lindsley, A History of St Stephen's Church, 1851-1963, published by the Rector and Wardens of St Stephens, 1963.
