Beautiful church with a dwindling membership. The windows are spectacular, especially the two by Louis C. Tiffany himself. They have a knowledgeable guide in their sexton.

Great old church with beautiful old architecture. Guided tour was very nice, to give you all the history in this historic church. Ride up in the caged elevator pretty cool, too!

the windows and design are just amazing. And right next door the Times House, where we stayed. The history was evident in the design. This is a must if you love art, and history. You will stand there in awe.

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the church. My guide was very knowledgeable. I loved the Otis cage elevator. Please don't miss this if you are in the area.

This was a quick stop only, but honestly I think you could spend at least an hour here. The young tour guides were knowledgeable and polite. The stained glass alone is worth the visit. Beautiful structure.

We finally got to tour the church on our last day in Jim Thorpe it was well worth the wait. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. The interior of the church is stunning.

The Tiffany and Gibson stained glass is fabulous. You should take the tour because you'll be able to see more of the glass than you can in just the chapel. You'll also get a ride in the oldest working Otis cage elevator. Not bad for...More

Church has some magnificent stained glass windows including Louis comfort Tiffany. Church has not been modernized. hill is a little steep. But you go up into the actual church in an elevator. There is a wonderful stone carving in the back of the church
