The country’s pre-eminent nineteenth- and early twentieth-century Anglican architects are well represented here. Richard Upjohn’s design for the church gave the country its first asymmetrical Gothic Revival church. The four-level tower and masonry spire firmly plant the building on its corner site (in what was an upper-income residential neighborhood at the time of construction). The church interior, its nave much as Upjohn designed it but with a deepend chancel, is well worth seeing. Like many affluent Episcopal churches, Grace has a fine collection of stained glass from a wide variety of periods and sources. Cram, Goodhue & Ferguson’s Gothic parish house, immediately south of the sanctuary, was remodeled and enlarged by Harkness & Geddes.
