Early English in its overall symmetry and simplicity, this church permits itself a few High Victorian flourishes in the square tower—a sign of coming changes in the work of the Upjohn firm that Richard M. Upjohn had just taken over from his father. The reredos and altar were designed by Tiffany in 1905. The Victorian Gothic parish house next door (1898) is by Frederick Lord Brown.
