The church building was designed by William Halsey Wood. It is an example of two English styles of the 16th and 17th centuries, Jacobean and Elizabethan.
“I think it’s one of the most beautiful churches in town, and it’s intimate. It’s not one of those huge Gothic churches you seen in Europe,” said Carolyn O’Brien, a Valley resident.
The building also reflects the influence of the turn-of-the-century arts and crafts movement, which sought to revive the hand-crafted quality of pre-industrial times. Wood used rough-faced random limestone, massive stone arches, timber roof trusses and other “handmade” materials to introduce the arts and crafts aesthetic to Youngstown.
