The congregation was established in 1885 and the Gothic Revival church building was constructed in 1917 to a design by Clarke & Howe to replace an earlier wooden building. It is a granite structure with a squat square three-stage tower at its southeast corner. The parish house, attached to the main building's northeast corner, is a Tudor Revival structure added in 1925.
Stained Glass Window
The church features a stained glass window scene of namesake St. Martin cutting off half of his cloak to give to a beggar. The windows of the church were designed by Boston window designer Harry E. Goodhue and his wife, Mary, and installed in 1919. A restoration of the windows was undertaken by an Attleboro studio, New England Stained Glass, during the winter of 2014-2015. The entire window was removed from the wall, then individual pieces were removed, cleaned, reassembled, and re-leaded onto new metal frames.
