Although the tower/spire is a later replacement (I believe) this is
a fine example of eclecticism in the mid-nineteenth century. The round
arches are borrowed from the Romanesque while the symmetrical plan
and the prominent pediments—one for the nave and a smaller one on the
tower—are from the neoclassical idiom. Although the very clean lines
suggest an almost contemporary design, the church was built in 1868.
