This 1848 church was built when the congregation outgrew the older stone chapel across the street. (See C: Trinity Chapel) It is Greek Revival in design, crowned by twin cupolas. The large auditorium was transformed a century ago when the church evolved from “low church” (pulpit-centered) to “high church” (altar-centered). The pews still display the brass numbered plates from the days when the church was supported by “pew rent.” Although Barbara Fritchie was an active member, her pew was removed in renovations.
