Inscription
Newark's second oldest Episcopal parish was founded in 1837. The architect of the present brown freestone building, completed in 1848, was the famed Richard Upjohn, a master of English Gothic style. In 1882 Samuel A. Ward, a choir-master here, composed a hymn tune that later became the melody of "America the Beautiful." Since the 19th century Grace Church has been noted for its choral music and Angelo-Catholic worship. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972 and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1988.
