Here we find yet more vigorous architecture from Jackson, Robertson & Adams, which, like Stone, Carpenter & Willson in the preceding generation, consistently comes through with buildings and ensembles that, for generations, have been programmatically fulfilling and visually delightful. The random-course-ashlar building, with limestone trim, is very much related to and inspired by the renewed Gothic of Ralph Adams Cram in so many churches of this era, most for Episcopal parishes. While the firm designed many houses and public buildings, this is one of its few churches. Too bad, for the strength of the massing and the presence on the street are just right for a residential neighborhood – forceful, but not overwhelming.
