Owner description: St. Saviour is an historical Episcopal church. The oldest part of the church was begun in 1876; later parts were added through 1901, including the renowned collection of stained glass windows by Tiffany and others. The parish is still active today, and we invite you to visit for a tour, for worship, or just for a moment of quiet respite in your day. During the tourist season (June - October), the church is open daily from about 8:30 - 5:00 for self-guided tours. Guided tours Sunday 11:15 (after the 10:00 Eucharist) and other times by appointment. The Church office (next door) is open Tuesday-Friday 8:30 - 1:30 year-round. May God continue to bless you!

“Spend Some Quiet Time Soaking Up The Beauty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

This Episcopal church had me ready to convert ... so exceptionally beautiful. My stepdaughter and I were fortunate enough to be the only visitors one recent Saturday afternoon, and the gloom and faint musty smell contrasted with the brilliance of the Tiffany stained-glass windows. Sitting quietly in this jewel-box, looking at the side-chapels and feeling the atmosphere of prayer that wrapped around us was a beautiful and oddly uplifting feeling. There's a guide you can purchase that explains the windows, but take time to feel the church itself, too.

“Amazing Tiffany stained-glass windows!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

Both a self-guided and volunteer guided tours available. Check for times on the door as they vary. A remarkable building on its own but the knockout feature are the windows with about a dozen authentic Tiffanys. Go in late afternoon when the light is perfect. wonderful place for a rainy day or hot afternoon respite.

“Stain Glass Windows”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

This church is on the register of historic places and has the most amazing collection of stain glass windows anywhere, including 10 by the Tiffany glass studios. Pick up a copy of the stain glass window self guided tour at the desk or better still take one of the several tours of the building offered each day. Please remember to leave a donation.
