Statement of Significance (as of designation - November 7, 1973):
Built in 1850, this structure was designed to resemble an Old World Parish Church. The Gothic Revival cruciform-design church features walls of yellow pise de terre and a high-pitched roof of red tile, and contains a rare organ and original carved walnut pews.

The church is still closed due to severe termite damage.

The church reports that termites are now under control, but litigation against Orkin is needed to provide funds for restoration.
