Richard Upjohn


Richard Upjohn trained as a cabinet maker in his native England before emigrating to the United States at age 26. He was an exponent of the Gothic Revival style. Upjohn is best known for his churches, including Trinity Church in New York City.  His use of pointed gables and decorative woodwork used on Kingscote in Newport, Rhodes Island was well-suited to Victorian domestic tastes.
