has relatively few nineteenth century churches and this is the oldest.
it sits on Landis Avenue, near the center of town and is nowhosts
a hotel & cocktail lounge. It was erected in 1868 or 1869 and
was used until 1963.
There are elements of the Romanesque Revival about
the building, but the battlement atop the tower is pure early Gothic. I expect
both towers once would have had spires, but few have survived winds and lightning.
