Fodor's Review

This Romanesque house of worship made of Rhode Island granite was built in 1816. Its steeple houses a 2,500-pound bell, the largest ever cast in Paul Revere's foundry.

Attractive church

A pleasant enough church that's worth a brief look-see, has some attractive touches in its otherwise somewhat austere interior. No charge to visit. Best to stop in to the parish house behind the church to gain entrance.
