Built on a small hill overlooking Imboden, a town built for the employees of the Imboden Iron Company, this is an attractive example of a rural Gothic Revival wooden church. The building is set on a high stone foundation and features windows with pointed-arched tracery and a corner bell tower with a hipped roof, wide eaves, and pointed-arched louvered vents.
