Saint Luke's Church
Hope, Warren County
A distinctive facade on this 1832 Episcopal church was the design of
William Bulgin, the minister. It has several early Gothic elements,
including the two quatrefoils insets, the tracery in the windows and
doorway, and the elaborated belfry. The interior has several fascinating
items, including the curved staircase, the pulpit high above the altar,
and the stained glass windows, which were a later addition. Listed on
the National Register of Historic Places.
