The stained glass windows in this church are so unique and beautiful. The church was empty the day we walked in and we were able to take it all in without a lot of people around us. Very beautiful and worth a stop.

So where I live, the churches are not open to visitors, no matter how spectacular they are. This church has 10 windows created by Louis Comfort Tiffany!!! Don't miss this if you like old churches and stained glass windows!
