Henry C. Dudley (1813–1894), known also as Henry Dudley, was an English-born North American architect, known for his Gothic Revival churches. He was a founding member of the American Institute of Architects and designed a large number of churches, among them Saint Paul's Episcopal Cathedral in Syracuse, New York, built in 1884,[1][2][3] and Trinity Church (Elmira, New York), completed in 1858.[4]


He partnered with architect Frank Wills, whom he knew from their days working together in Exeter, England for John Hayward,[5] and worked on a number of churches with him. After Wills' sudden death in April 1857, Dudley is believed to have completed the Episcopal Church of the Nativity (Huntsville, Alabama), which is now a National Historic Landmark.[2] He also worked on his own and with Frederick Diaper.[1]

Prominent works[edit]

Many of Dudley's works are listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP).[6] Buildings designed by Dudley include:

Two churches believed to be the work of Wills and Dudley will likely have had increased involvement by Dudley, due to their completion after Will's death:[2]
