This double-transept Late Gothic Revival church resembles the small parish churches found on the Eastern Seaboard that were influenced by the English Ecclesiological movement. It has prominent buttresses on the corners of the heavy squat square tower with broad, pointed-arched openings and is topped with battlements. Coursed sandstone excavated from the power canal, then under construction, and red sandstone used for the trim add to the look and flavor of the English parish church. The stained glass windows were manufactured by Sharpe Brothers Art Glass Company of Newark, New Jersey, and other studios.
