St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, which was built in 1914, is a masonry building rendered in the Gothic Revival style. It is characterized by its balanced, but asymmetrical facade of three bays with a crenelated entry to the right, lanai and doorway in the center, and bell tower on the left. All openings are Gothic arched with drip stones. St. Peter’s Episcopal Church is significant as a typical Gothic revival church in Honolulu of the 1912-1915 period rendered in masonry, with subtle design modifications which reflect its Chinese congregation’s heritage. In addition it is significant as a symbol of the acculturation of the Chinese into Hawaii’s society.
