Excerpted from "The Church of Holy Innocents (Willow and 6th Street) was built in 1871 by the Stevens family in remembrance of their daughter Julia, who died in Rome at age seven from typhoid fever. Its design is taken from a small parish church in England, as was the Episcopal custom, and the architects were Edward Tuckerman Potter and Henry Vaughan. Potter's banded arches emphasize the polychromatic exterior of brownstone and white and red sandstone. The choir was added in 1913, the baptistery in 1932.
