Summit Methodist Episcopal Church
Summit, Union County
Kent Place Blvd.
founded 1867, built 1889
There are two date markers for this fine stone building—a brass plate noting 1889 and an incised stone with 1910, so I am using the earlier date for at least some of this building. [but elsewhere the date of 1899 is used--must get consistent.
There are several elements borrowed from the Gothic idiom—the crenellations in the tower and tracery in the arched windows provide a decided impression of the Gothic. The openings for the entrances and the windows are neither Gothic arches nor the round-arch of the Romanesque, however, but what is known as a Tudor arch, although it is frequently used in Islamic architecture.
