When St. Paul's moved from Lowertown to "The Hill" they took everything they could from the old building for use in the new one, including pews, chancel furnishings, and stained glass. The new building was designed by Emmanuel Masqueray.

The Lowertown church had a pipe organ by a New York builder. That instrument was put in storage at the time of the move, but they couldn't afford to install it in the new church, and it was sold to pay for the storage fee.
