Spectacular Romanesque Church designed by renowned architect Richard Upjohn

This church is a Baltimore "must see". Founded in 1692, its one of the oldest churches in Baltimore. The architecture and sculptures are simply stunning.

Many delightful architectural and design features inside and out suggest the wealth of the neighborhood more than 100 years ago ( before the hill was overcome with dense high rise office buildings and city traffic). Romanesque features in and out. Loaded with Tiffany and other stained glass windows. Magnificent multi-thousand pipe organ. A time capsule of sorts. Seems closed except... More

I wanted to visit this church, but for some reason it was closed when I arrived. One good thing about the church is that the doors is see through, so you can actually peek inside without being in the building. I could even take a few good photos. Too bad I couldn't see the whole church.

Children welcome in services, but... More

I liked everything about this church. Music wonderful; old church beautiful and fascinating; sermon interesting and short. You don't have to be Episcopalian to love this church: all welcome.

I stumbled on this gem last Easter. The music was amazing - and they do the sing-a-long Hallelujah Chorus to end the service.

I had a pleasant tour through the church. If you plan a day of sight seeing, I would include this as part of the tour. I would not make a special trip alone to go see the church. It is interesting and historical.
