St. Peter's Episcopal Church is a historic church complex at 61, 71, and 81 River Street in Milford, Connecticut. It includes an Gothic Revival church built out of Portland, Connecticut brownstone in 1850-51, and a rectory and parish hall, added on either side of the church in the mid-1890s. The church is a major work of Frank Wills, a major proponent of the Gothic Revival. The church is also one of the few surviving 19th-century buildings in Milford's civic center.[2]

The complex was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
