Notable Architectural Features:
Exterior Ivy-covered, and shaded by many trees, this old brick church and surrounds create the impression of an English churchyard. The roof pitch is not over steep, and the cornice is extremely simple. The tower is unusually placed at the rear of the church, in the graveyard. It is simple, the ground story of brick, the small upper story of wood. The corners are turned by pilasters, and there is a simple cornice. Doorway The doorway has a trace of English gothic feeling, perhaps not original. The door itself has sunken panels.
(WPA Architectural Survey - ca. 1935 - # 18)

St. Peters Episcopal Church
"view...showing one of three lanceted, arched Italian Gothic Revival windows spaced across its facade. This fine old church is a copy of an old Italian church, having the same facade and same belfry placed in the rear. St. Peters is also noted for its old box pews in the nave and 1860 organ, which is still considered one of New England's outstanding musical instruments."
