The Unitarian was built in 1776 a few years after St. Michael's. It's a beautiful old church to visit. Step inside to see the beautiful ceiling arches. The cemetery behind the church is very unique. The people buried here spend an eternity giving back to...More

The choir certainly was in good form. They also had some guest musicians. The sanctuary was beautiful with the colors from the windows adding to the arched ceiling.

This cemetery is amazing! It's beautiful and overgrown, so very peaceful. It's kind of sad how overgrown it is over the graves, but it is very unique. We were there on a Saturday afternoon and sadly we arrived after the church itself had closed. I...More

Got a chance to explore the church and graveyard. Very beautiful and peaceful. Pathways were well kept while maintaining the overgrown aspect of the graveyard.

It was on our way - the gardens, cemetery and church are beautiful. The history is interesting and oozes with loving care for congregation and facility. A docent is on site to share the story and beautiful architecture .... worth the stop in.

With its fan-vaulted ceiling and stained glass windows, the sanctuary is lovely. It is sometimes open to the public, and we felt welcome at the Sunday service. The intentionally overgrown cemetery is a serene place to stroll or sit and reflect.
