Calvary Episcopal Church

-A A +A
1867, John H. Parsons. 1300 Arapahoe St. (NR)

A tall, stately steeple, sharply pitched roof, and Gothic-arched openings framed in stone distinguish this tiny brick church, one of the first Gothic Revival edifices in Colorado. Built as a chapel for the Episcopal college that evolved into the Colorado School of Mines, it is Golden's oldest standing church.
