The 1887 Church
The circular stained glass window over the pulpit is original to the church. This design, usually referred to as a Star of David, is also called a Star of Creation. A very popular Christian symbol in the 1880's, it is frequently found in nineteenth century churches.
The church remains a consecrated house of worship and is frequently used for baptisms, weddings, memorial services and other religious events.
