It was deemed "architecturally significant as a fine adaptation of the Gothic Revival-a style traditionally deemed appropriate for churches of the Anglican Communion. Its seating capacity of eighty-five is symbolic of the religious fervor and optimism of the parish,-which recorded only eleven communicants and thirty-five Sunday School pupils at the time the cornerstone was laid. The building also attains merit through its association with the Right Reverend Benjamin Bosworth Smith, a pioneer Kentucky clergyman and educator."
