Object ID # ANSON.067.001
Title 67 Anson Street (St. Stephen's Episcopal Church)
Object Type Property File
Scope & Content Constructed 1835-1837. Built, and possibly designed, by John and Henry Horlbeck. The church's restrained classicism is evident in its arched center doorway, surmounted by a tablet and flanking stucco recesses with interspersed Tuscan pilasters on three sides of the building. The simplicity of the interior is relieved by the Doric columns supporting the gallery, the barrel-vaulted ceiling, and the arched chancel window. Also of interest are marble memorials to Sarah Hopton Russell and Sarah Russell Dehon.
