Saint Paul's [Episcopal]
Trenton, Mercer County
Gothic Revival was a new architectural style in the state when St.
Paul's church was founded in 1848. It was erected in that year as a
mission of St. Michael's.
It is very similar to St. Thomas Episcopal church in Glassboro, designed
by John Notman sometime between 1840 and 1846. I suspect the plans
for this church were based on Notman's plan for St Thomas. We have
relatively few Notman-designed buildings in this state compared to
the riches in Philadelphia, where it seems he did his best work.
now owned by a Hispanic congregation, the Iglesia Christiana Domasca.
