Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 23, 1987):
Consecrated October 5, 1848, Grace Church was commissioned by Bishop George Washington Doane of New Jersey, one of Richard Upjohn's most important patrons. It is based on A.C. Pugins's GOTHIC ARCHITECTURE, which became the major reference for American Gothic Revival architects.
