Long Description:

The rectory, built in 1917 by W.E. Brown, an architect from Kansas City, Missouri, has three floors--two main floors and a finished basement. The main floor has seven rooms and a back porch, and the second floor has six rooms and a sleeping porch on each end. The full basement has seven rooms. The building is constructed of rough-faced, irregular blocks of Carthage limestone laid in a random pattern. The rectory has over 65 windows with wood frames, red oak trim, two main staircases, and a firebrick stone fireplace with hearths made of granitoid with shelves and bases. The low pitched, hipped roof with wide overhang is covered with composition shingles.

The rectory facade is dominated by a two story porch which covers the central three bays. The porch is open on the first level and supported by massive stone piers, while the second level is enclosed by windows. Basement and first floor window head openings are flat with stone voussoirs. A stone chimney partially projects on the south elevation and a second chimney is offset on the rear, or west, elevation.

– National Register Nomination

The rectory appears to be in very good condition and continues to serve as the rectory for the church.
