Significance: Old St. Paul's is the only surviving Richard Upjohn-designed building in Baltimore. Within the architect's œuvre, its use of the Early Christian/Romanesque basilica style is unique. The present interior, dating largely from a 1904 redecoration program, contains stained glass, mosaic and decorative painting by Tiffany & Company, D. Maitland Armstrong, and Chase & Ames of Boston. In addition, St. Paul's is the oldest Episcopal parish in Baltimore, established 1692, with many prominent families and historical figures among its parishioners and guests. The present building is the third church on this site, the first dating back to 1732, the second built in 1814 to designs by Robert Cary Long, Jr. The Upjohn church incorporates the foundation and some exterior walls from the Long church.
