When we got to Cumberland we stopped at the visitor center and one of the things we were told was this is another Episcopal church with Tiffany Windows. (We saw Trinity Episcopal in Buffalo, New York's windows previously). But as we studied the information about the church, and it's location within the Fort Cumberland's grounds, and it's intricate and deep connections to the Underground Railroad we were just awestruck at it's beauty and fullness of Spirit. The cooperation between escaped slave Samuel Denison and Rev. David Buel made this church part of the last stop for slaves moving north before hitting the Mason Dixon line. What a fascinating history. But then, there are the windows! When you enter the sanctuary and look around you have no problem identifying those exquisite Tiffany windows. The rear windows and the altar windows are more in his traditional style, but the Rizpah Window over the South Door goes more into an art deco design, unique and wonderful. The sanctuary itself is an architectural treat. Just a lovely experience to be in this holy building where great history was made.
