Statement of Significance (as of designation - November 11, 1971):
Constructed 1812-1814, this church was erected on the site of the American French Academy, a theater which was destroyed by fire in 1811. Designed to serve both as an Episcopal parish church and as a monument to the 72 people who died in the fire, it is one of America's earliest and most distinctive Greek Revival churches.
