Christ the King Episcopal Church, Stone Ridge, NY

IMG_1687
This church was built by local Hudson Valley architect William van Benschoten. According to The New York Times, van Benschoten died on April 1, 1968 so this church precedes that date, although it is unclear by how long.  The architect consulted for the New York Episcopal Diocese and has at least one other extant church to his credit, as well as several modern houses in the region.  Christ the King is one of his most contemporary and spartan designs, with no exterior decoration of note.
