St. Luke's Church, also known as "The Brick Church," and the Newport Parish Church, is likely America's purest expression of Gothic architecture. Its buttressed walls, lancet side windows, and traceried east windows link the building to the architecture of the Middle Ages. Although oral tradition dates the structure to 1632, architectural evidence suggests that the church with its tower was constructed during the last quarter of the 17th century. After the dis-establishment of the Anglican Church in 1786, St. Luke's fell into disrepair and was more or less in ruins for most of the 19th century. A series of repairs began in the late 19th century and a through restoration was completed in 1957. (National Historic Landmark, 1960)
