What a grand place! The stained glass windows are such a work of art, help telling the word of God. If you appreciate art and beauty, you must visit this place.

In a city of beautiful historic architecture, this church stood out as one of the best. Definitely worth checking out when seeing Wright Square.

We were walking by, and a friendly gentleman invited us to enter. He said we were welcome to take pictures as well. The church is 275 years old! It is totally beautiful! The stained class is amazing! What a special place!

We stumbled onto this beautiful church, walked inside and were wowed by its beauty. And as a very special gift, the organist was practicing. We had a "private" concert. It was amazingly beautiful. Giant pipe organ really sounded great. I recommend seeing this church.
