Emmanuel Episcopal Church

-A A +A
1876–1879. 1900. In the angle formed by the intersection of Winchester Ave. and South Fork Rd.

Originally board and batten but now stuccoed, this perky little Gothic Revival church anchors an angular street intersection with its corner tower and spire. The attached parish house, which forms an integral part of the complex, replicates details of the earlier sanctuary. When it was finished in 1900, Bishop Peterkin called it “a great feat for so small a congregation,” and gave particular thanks “to the energy and liberality of a few good women.”
