Note:

The authorship of this large, neoclassical brick church is especially interesting, since Stillwell’s records show that architect Baylor of the Methodist Board of Church had a role in its design. It is known that such sources often provided church designs, but thus far little is known of the process. Although Stillwell did not sign the drawings, they are in his papers and show his usual drawing style.
