Earle & Fuller's
St. Johns Church
One of America’s
best-known architects, Asher Benjamin, is represented with a drawing for
the design of the Asa Waters House in
Millbury. A collection of Elbridge Boyden’s plans and
drawings for Cushing Academy are in the assortment of drawings.
Church plans and drawings include a hand-painted drawing of Boyden’s
design for the Congregational Church in Spencer
(1879), the blueprints for Bigelow and Wadsworth’s (1898-1907)
restoration of Old South Church in Boston (ca. 1899), and the design for
St. John’s Church in North Adams (n.d.),
the latter containing original paint samples for the church. This
is the west elevation of the church and original paint samples chosen
specifically for the church.

published in the Proceedings of the American Antiquarian Society
in 1986. Many Elbridge Boyden plans from Albany, New York, and Connecticut
are in the collection of the Society.
