Late Gothic Revival

in the Northern Valley

The northern valley showed a continued interest in Gothic Revival in the early 1900s. In 1902 Winchester completed its Mount Hebron Cemetery, where more than 2500 Civil War soldiers were buried, with a gatehouse residence by New York architects Barney & Chapman. The heavy turreted structure is more “Medieval Revival,” since its sources seem to be French Gothic and Renaissance structures. In 1916 in Boyce (Clarke County), patrician landowners built Emmanuel Episcopal Chapel in the rural village Gothic style advocated by Late Gothic Revival architect and theorist Ralph Adams Cram.
