New Years Fire at St Mark’s Church

red_eagleThe New Jersey Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIANJ) is saddened by the tragic fire that ravaged St. Mark’s Church in West Orange on New Years Day.  The church is a national treasure of incalculable historic significance.

We implore all those involved: the building’s current owners, the town council, and our municipal, state and national officials and representatives, to do everything in their power to ensure that this tragedy is not compounded and that the extant portions of the building are saved.  A treasure once lost is lost forever.  We cannot allow what remains of this treasure to be lost.
