Beautiful old church with amazing Tiffany windows. Truly a place of Christian worship, you can feel " God is in this place". This structure and the tunnels underneath are history gems. A must for a history buff.

A beautiful place of worship. Lots of history and sits at the foot of historic Washington Street. Built on the site of Fort Cumberland and the tunnels below the church remain. Tours are available. Call the church for details. Amazing stained glass windows!

One of the most gorgeous churches I have ever been to! The windows and the architecture are beautiful, and the tunnels are really special. Unfortunately there are no regular tour guides, so it's best to call ahead to the church secretary so she can be...More
