Troy N.Y. - St. Paul’s Episcopal Church 01

St. Paul's Episcopal Church was built in the mid-1820s as a direct copy of Ithiel Town's Trinity Church in New Haven, Connecticut, making it one of the earliest churches in America to embrace Gothic Revival elements. Today, due to changes in the original, St. Paul's is closer to Trinity's original appearance than Trinity itself. During renovations in the late 1890s, stained glass and other interior work by Louis Comfort Tiffany was added.

 

In 1979, the church and two outbuildings were added to the National Register of Historic Places. Seven years later, when the Central Troy Historic District was created and added to the Register, it was listed as a contributing property.
