St. George’s Episcopal Church, Durham, New Hampshire

While Episcopalians had met in homes to worship in the town of Durham since the 1880s, St. George’s Episcopal Church was not formally organized until 1948. Members of the community and the diocese contributed and gathered funds to build its current structure, which was dedicated in 1954. Combining modesty with elegance, architect John Carter merges Gothic elements and the Episcopal tradition with modernist design, winning the Church Architectural Guild of America “Best Small Church” design award in 1955.
