Memorial Presbyterian Church

-A A +A
1872, Edward Kendall. 29 W. North St.

This handsome and dramatic Gothic Revival church is built of Campbell's Ledge sandstone laid up in elaborate rubblework and crowned by a stone spire. Tiffany windows in the baptistery depict the three children of Calvin Wadham, the church's patron, who were lost in a scarlet fever epidemic.
