Christ Church (Episcopal), 1 Dresden Avenue, Gardiner, Kennebec County, ME



Significance: This is the third "Gothick" church built in New England and one of the earliest built in America. Christ Church played a pioneering role, introducing a new architectural style to America. This style became the more academic Gothic and dominated church architecture for decades. Christ Church was one of the earliest stone buildings in Maine and perhaps the earliest stone church in the state.
