    A Byzantine granite structure inspired by the Baths of Pisa in Italy and built through gifts made by Thomas Baldwin Peddie, philanthropist and mayor of Newark in the 1860s, the church was erected in 1890. It features an unusual use of interior spaces, rich paneling, 200 doors, 173 windows -- most of which are stained glass -- and a dome 80 feet above the main auditorium.
