Calvary Presbyterian Church features a steeply pitched gable roof and tall bell tower. The church is eclectic in its style, with Romanesque and Tudor elements and magnificent side tower. The interior of the church is especially notable for its tall ceilings and exposed wooden trusses. Additional features include five beautifully executed art glass windows by Maitland Armstrong, moved here in 1951 from the 1892 Randall Memorial Church at Sailors Snug Harbor, which was razed. Maitland Armstrong’s “Emmaus” window was restored in 2002-2004.
A special, pre-booked guided tour highlighting Maitland Armstrong windows will be offered.
Space is limited and advance registration is suggested.
The church will be open for self-guided tours Saturday, May 20th, and Sunday, May 21st, from 10 to 2; with Sunday service, including choir and organ music, from 11 a.m. to 12 noon on Sunday.
