Mechanicsville Presbyterian Church

-A A +A
c. 1890, Milton Bean. Durham Rd. (PA 413), 1 mile northwest of Buckingham

This simple stone chapel with Gothic-styled windows would scarcely be worth noting were it not for the remarkable Queen Anne porch that spans the pair of chimneys that frame the entrance and in turn support a belfry. These signature elements were the work of the Lansdale architect whose eye-catching designs enliven nearby Doylestown in the same decade.
