From the Guidebook:
Designed in 1859 by Lt. Julian
McAllister and built by shipwrights of the Pacific Mail
and Steamship Company, St. Paul's is an outstanding example
of early California Gothic ecclesiastical architecture.
Notable for its fine craftsmanship, this building has
continuously served the Episcopal Church since its consecration
by the Rt. Rev. William Ingraham Kip in 1860.
