An important site in the history of the Gothic-Revival style in America. The first attempt in this country to follow a specific English medieval church model for which measured drawings existed. Its design and construction were a milestone in the career of its 19th century architect, Richard Upjohn, firmly establishing him as the foremost practitioner of the Gothic style in the U.S. -- National Historic Landmark statement of significance, June 24, 1986
