St Paul’s Episcopal Church, Watertown, NY

Hen’s teeth. That’s about how rare an Akron-Auditorium church is in the liturgical community of Roman Catholics, Episcopalians, Orthodox and most Lutherans. The architect for this 1889-1891 design was L.B. Valk & Son, a bi-coastal father-and-son architectural practice that began in New York City and shifted to Los Angeles. Valk & Son sold a very similar plan to Presbyterians and Disciples of Christ. In 2011 St Paul’s was on the market and their congregation was about to merge with another Episcopal parish.

Suffice to say, this is a very rare example of an A-A church for a denomination which more often chooses the liturgical model.
