We went to church here. The inside is gorgeous and the Tiffany stained glass is breathtaking. George Washington worshiped here too. Definitely worth a peak inside when it is open.

This church has Tiffany stained glass windows. It is really interesting to see the inside of the church with the family pews and all. Reminiscent of Boston's North Church. This is one that wasn't destroyed and rebuilt due to fire or hurricane. Very nice.
