Statement of Significance (as of designation - December 23, 1987):
Begun in 1846, this edifice is one of the first Gothic Revival churches in the Southern states. Designed by Richard Upjohn, this modest asymmetrical building with a steeply pitched roof was derived from a rural English model. It set the style in the South for a long time, and is considered one of Upjohn's finest expressions in the Gothic style.
