Gothic Revival

Masonic Hall • Order A Print

Gothic Revival Style, which lasted from 1830 to 1860, was used for everything from cottages to castles. The most predominant feature is the pointed arch. Other features include pinnacles, battlements, window tracery, high roofs, and high chimneys. Several churches in downtown York incorporate this style. They include the original Masonic Temple, St. John’s Episcopal, and First St. John’s Evangelical.
