Chapel of the Holy Innocents, Saint Mary's Hall
Burlington, Burlington County
This unassuming chapel marks the beginning of the English Gothic style
as the officially-sanctioned one for Anglican churches. It was designed
in 1845 after a specific church in England, for which the architect,
William Notman, had measured drawings. The steeply-pitched roof, the
transept and the tracery in the choir window are among the features
that will soon be standard for Episcopal churches.
