Description 

Begun in 1772, and Gothicized by Francis D. Lee between 1852 and 1854, this is a good example of the dominance of the romantic and picturesque in the arts of the mid-19th century. Lee's interior imitates that of Westminster Abbey's chapel of Henry VII. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, November 7, 1973
