All Saints Episcopal Church

-A A +A
1887, Howard Hoppin. 111 Greenwich Ave.

All Saints is one of a series of small village chapels, most Neo-Gothic in style and Episcopalian in affiliation, executed by Providence architect Howard Hoppin. His signature is the asymmetrically placed side tower—here polygonal in form—engulfed by the gable-roofed main mass of the building. A number of these Hoppin churches have been destroyed, which makes the rather forlorn condition of this building all the sadder. Despite the effects of aluminum siding and deferred maintenance, the basic strong geometry of the structure shines through. The serial imagery of the steep gables along the east facade, extending from the end of the nave along the length of the parish house, is particularly splendid.
