Christ Church Episcopal

This church listed on the National Register of Historic Places is an Early Gothic piece of architecture whose cornerstone was laid in 1889. The castellated bell tower forms a very prominent feature, being fifteen and one half feet square and eighty-two feet high. The stair to roof is designed in the form of a turret, circular at the base and octagonal at the top. Another outstanding feature of Christ Church is its unique treasury of stained glass window art. The signature red-tiled crosses that span the roof have captured the attention of generations.
