St. Paul's Episcopal Church is a historic Episcopal church at Old York and Ashbourne Roads in Elkins Park, Cheltenham Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania. It was originally built in 1861, and is a gray stone church in the Gothic style. The church was conceived and designed by noted financier Jay Cooke (1821-1905). Its size was doubled with an expansion in 1870, and a 60 feet tall tower added. A transept was added in 1883, and the two-story parish hall wing in 1891. Noted architect Horace Trumbauer (1868-1938) made refinements to the church during the 1897 to 1924 period. Also on the property is the 2 1/2-story rectory built in 1868, a stable, Trumbauer designed Jay Cooke Memorial auditorium (1906), and sexton's cottage (1923). Adjacent to the church is a cemetery laid out in 1879 and expanded in 1905. Located in the cemetery is the Jay Cooke mausoleum.
