I attended a Peter Mayer Concert here and came back for a Sunday Service. Incredible building built by Frank Lloyd Wright and on the historic register. Really welcoming group of members, inspiring message and great music.

Frank Lloyd Wright was commissioned to design the Meeting House in 1946 and the congregation finished it in 1951. It is well worth a visit with many eloquent and skilled orators, musicians and choir.
