Notes NOTES: The main body of the church dates from 1877. Richardson's successor firm, Shepley Rutan & Coolidge, added the west porch (1894-1897). In 1914 and 1937 respectively, they enriched the interior with a new pulpit and sounding board and Byzantine inspired decoration. The church was restored in 2003 by Maginnis & Walsh.
