Description

This "rural gothic" style Episcopal church was constructed in 1858 — only three years after Northfield was founded. It was consecrated by Bishop Henry Whipple, a well-known state leader who advocated for the rights of Minnesota's indigenous inhabitants, as well as the cause of the Episcopal church. This building combines aspects of medieval architecture and the simplicity necessary for frontier-era Minnesota buildings.
