This high-style English Collegiate Gothic building is clad in Cynwydd stone ashlar quarried near Philadelphia. A conscious copy of Thomas's Church of the Holy Apostles and Mediator in West Philadelphia, it is evidence that High Church Gothic Revival was popular with a wide variety of Protestant denominations during the first decades of the twentieth century.
