See also the section on Romanesque Revival
The Romanesque Revival first started in Munich, Germany around 1830, where it was called the Rundbogenstil (round-arched style). The earliest known example in New York of the Romanesque Revival is the Church of the Pilgrims (now Our Lady of Lebanon Roman Catholic Church), 113 Remsen Street, Brooklyn Heights (Richard Upjohn, 1844-46). The German Rundbogenstil influenced St. George's Church (Episcopal), (Blesch & Eidlitz, 1846-56), located in an appropriately Picturesque setting on Stuyvesant Square, Manhattan. Renwick's 1846 Church of the Pilgrims on Union Square in Manhattan, was a fully-developed example of the Norman (French Romanesque) style. At the same time, Renwick was designing the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C. (1846-55), considered "the first great secular monument of the Romanesque Revival," in a highly Picturesque mode.
