It's a pretty church with an interesting history and its doors are never locked. It reminds me of the Episcopal churches I used to see in the Virginia. Worth a peek inside when you stroll down Franklin's Main Street.

Visited late afternoon, very peaceful and beautiful with light coming through stained glass windows. Doors unlocked and no one else in church. Enjoyed quietly sitting on pew and reflecting on history of church and surroundings. Free parking and admission.

Come inside. Dont rush by. The stained glass comes alive. Quite a treasure. Inside reminds me of the Stave Churches in Norway.

Stop and enter this sanctuary and sit in one of the glorious pews, sit quietly, and say a prayer of thanksgiving for all your blessings!

The doors are always open. If you want a quiet place to sit peacefully between services, this is it.
