Shrine of Mother Seton
7 State Street, Shanley & Sturges (1965)

Although a contemporary building, the shrine was designed in the Georgian Style to match the adjacent Watson House. This small chapel is dedicated to Elizabeth Seton, the founder of the Catholic order of Sisters of Charity, who was canonized in 1975. A close comparison of the Shrine with the Watson House reveals the material, technical and stylistic differences between the 18th century residence and its historicist 20th century neighbor.
