We are Catholic and were looking for a church for mass while visiting. We went to this Episcopal church not knowing what to expect. First we found the mass to be very similar.

Visited here specifically to view the Windows by Tiffany and La Farge studios. Wow! They are fantastic as was the rest of the church! A passionate tour with a lot of evident pride. I was blown away! Don't skip this great American treasure!

We were lucky enough to find the door open, they were expecting a church tour and one of the members was nice enough to show us around. Gorgeous church but heard they are falling behind and may actually be closing. Such a shame

I enjoy visiting the old style churches. This one did not disappoint. I had a young tour guide who was very knowledgeable about the church. She was will to allow me to take a photo of her with her shoes removed for being on 'Holy Ground'.

The church is beautiful. It is well worth the cost to take a tour. The elevator ride is pretty cool. The tour guide was a teen who had all the facts but could work on presentation.

we had a young man as a guide who was absolutely wonderful & very knowledgeable. he explained the history of the church, the family who provided much of the treasures and the town's history. the Tiffany stained glass windows are magnificent, including two by the master himself.
