St. Paul's Episcopal Church

-A A +A
1857, Niernsee and Neilson; 1902 sanctuary and baptistery additions. 102 N. Union St.

Designed by a major Baltimore firm, this French Norman-derived church has the restrained qualities and smooth surfaces that the architects employed in their other religious buildings. The most notable feature of the stuccoed brick church is its three-story multitiered front tower with a broach spire. Tall pointed-arched stained glass windows flanked by buttresses embellish the exterior. The interior has original wooden trusses, cast-iron Corinthian columns supporting a gallery, and some of the original pews.
