All Saints Church, designed by Ralph Adams Cram, was constructed between 1892 and 1929 and is considered to be Cram’s first major architectural commission. Recognized by architectural and ecclesiastical communities for its innovative and inspirational design, All Saints established Cram’s reputation as a major architect and influenced the design of Anglican church architecture in the United States for the next fifty years.  Over the subsequent years, Cram’s career as an architect has been praised and the significance of All Saints has increasingly been recognized as one of the most country’s significant religious buildings.  This tour will examine the recent extensive restoration and conservation work recently completed by the Parish of All Saints to preserve this important landmark.
