St. Stephen’s Episcopal

St. Stephen's! For some reason, "St. James' Infirmary" keeps playing through my head.

St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church [website] is an American Gothic church in Millburn. Construction began in 1853, and the building was consecrated in 1855.

St. Stephen's, from the back. Or maybe it's the front.

It has, like almost all still-standing buildings of that period, had some additions and renovations.

A full history of the church can be found here, and historical reminiscences can be found here. (I have a short attention span, and I am not going to fully read and recapitulate them at this time.)
