Original Description (From Book)
This small but handsome church was erected in 1870 and was for many years the home of St. Phillips [i.e. Philips] Church. The simple shape and Romanesque forms make it a very simple yet effective church. The steep roof with large dormers were progressive architectural details when the church was built.
