Romanesque Revival Style
1894
One of the largest wood shingle structures in Monmouth County. This church was built in only five months in 1894 - cornerstone July 1894, completion December 1895.

The architects, Weary adn Kramer of New York, departed from the usual brick and stone materials of the Romanesque Revivial style.

This well preserved structure has several distinctive features:

A widely visible town landmark is its square tower, 4 stories high (72 feet) with lighted cupola on top. Tower corners are rounded, creating a turreted effect.

Stained glass: Each street wall has a large rosette window with eight main “petals,” undergirded by six more windows with round arch heads. On three walls, about half the surface consists of stained glass windows. The Third Avenue side has 19 in different shapes, and the less visible uphill side has 13.

Architecture: The building is symmetrical, including roof and windows. The 4-story square tower at the corner is flanked by 2-story structures with gabled roofs and a rosette window with round arch head in each wall, in turn flanked by pyramid-roofed sections. An additional gabled section is on the Third Avenue side to the north. Roof shapes are highlighted with white fasciae and eaves.
