PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- St. John’s Episcopal Church in Pleasantville has been recommended by Gov. Andrew Cuomo to be included in the National Registers of Historic Places, according to The Examiner.

Built in 1912, the church expresses "early twentieth century Gothic Revival-style ecclesiastical architecture" wrote William Krattinger, a Historic Preservation program analyst for New York State in an April letter, said the report.

The 8 Sunnyside Ave. church and rectory apparently meet the qualifications to be included on the registers, said The Examiner.

Architect Charles Hoag designed the church whose Gothic Revival design is central to its status in history, said the report.

Among historic events there, was the 1928 marriage of the King of Sweden's nephew, said The Examiner.

“St. John’s Episcopal Church has been a treasured landmark in Pleasantville since the turn of the 20th century,” Pleasantville Mayor Peter Scherer said in a press release, according to The Examiner.
