Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 23, 1987):
Designed (1865-1869) late in Richard Upjohn's career, St. Mark's is an unusual design set in the side of a hill. Commissioned by the philanthopist, Asa Packer, one of America's richest men of the time, the church is beautifully appointed and maintained in this picturesque Pennsylvania village on the Lehigh River.
