Abbey Reformed Church–United Church of Christ (Abbey Reformed Church)

-A A +A
Abbey Reformed Church
1927–1929, Ralph Adams Cram for Cram and Ferguson. 601 Church St.

This church reveals itself in subtle ways, with the uncoursed golden sandstone trimmed with limestone, the harmonious proportions of the facade with prominent buttresses anchoring its corners, the rose window in the gable, and the slender copper fleche gracing the gable roof's ridge. As the congregation's funds were limited, the stained glass windows designed by Boston's William Burnham Studio were fabricated and installed in phases as late as 1956. They depict the story of both the denomination and Huntingdon's congregation. A three-story Sunday school building to the north was erected contemporaneously.
