Episcopal Church of the Epiphany

-A A +A
1879–1881, Thomas B. Fitzgerald; c. 1975 spire replaced. 781 Main St.

In contrast to the Methodist church (PI42), this church is in a restrained English Gothic Revival style, a popular choice for Episcopalians. The gable-end facade of the stuccoed and scored church is anchored by a prominent, three-tiered corner tower with a tall broach spire. Triangular traceried dormers on the polychrome roof appear to melt into the slate. J. R. Lamb Company of New York designed and made most of the stained glass windows. In 1904 the chancel was remodeled and the pews replaced, and in 1979 the balcony was enlarged.
