Description

St. John's Episcopal Church was built in 1835-36, consecrated in 1839, and was designed by Richard Upjohn, who would go on to design Trinity Church in New York City and St. Paul's Cathedral in Buffalo. St. John's was the first church he designed, the first Gothic Revival style church in Bangor, and is perhaps the finest example of a Gothic Revivial church in Maine.

This photograph shows the interior, with fine ribbed vaults and raised galleries, and the chancel, added in an expansion in 1863, decorated for Christmas. The large window was contracted with the Tiffany Company and shows decorative designs and Christian symbols, including the lamb and cross of St. John. The original building was wooden, and the window burned along with the church in the 1911 fire.
