Episcopal congregations built in an English tradition through much of
the mid-to-late nineteenth century, and this stone building, erected
in 1871, is no exception. There is an east-facing altar, an articulated
chancel, and the rusticated stone, a suggestion of buttresses, a steeply
sloping roofline, and the open timberwork that are characteristic of
the Episcopal Gothic idiom in architecture.
