Fodor's Review

This handsome Gothic Revival church was built in 1874 and designed by James Renwick, also the architect of the Smithsonian's Castle and New York City's St. Patrick's Cathedral. Inside this National Historic Landmark is one of the largest collections of Tiffany stained-glass windows anywhere.

Welcoming / Architectural landmark

Visited to see and explore the location of my parent's 1945 wedding. I was welcomed for a tour and was charmed by the history, plus the passion of the current membership in keeping this church building and congregation viable. The church has magnificent Tiffany stained glass windows and 1800-style ornamentation.
