Regarding Grace Episcopal Church. According to the Madison Landmarks Commission, "A gracious Capitol Square landmark for over 150 years, Grace Episcopal Church was built of our native golden sandstone and is a distinguished example of the Gothic Revival style, inspired by the Gothic Revival that was in vogue for English religious structures at the time. The church was designed by pioneer Milwaukee architect James Douglas. Grace Episcopal congregation was established in 1839 and was one of the first churches founded in the tiny settlement that would become the City of Madison."
