St. Mark's Episcopal Church

Race and Susquehanna Sts., Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania



Designed (1865-1869) late in Richard Upjohn's career, St. Mark's is an unusual design set in the side of a hill. Commissioned by the philanthopist, Asa Packer, one of America's richest men of the time, the church is beautifully appointed and maintained in this picturesque Pennsylvania village on the Lehigh River. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, December 23, 1987
