Walter D. Pugh, who was an important architect in Salem, designed this church! Here's some on his Salem architecture.

Beautiful window! I love all the blues and purples. They make a wonderful contrast with the richness of the wooden pews and balustrade, which are lovely in their curves. The organ is quite majestic too!

i love those vitrals, and the blue color in contrast with the brown-orange of the wood is fantastic!

Interestingly, a number of years ago I lent some carpentry skills to fixing the spire at Whitespires. I live not too far away from there. Lovely photo!

What brought you there? I know they rent it out for weddings.

A handrail of the arc, and the stained glass are splendid.

Thank you for showing a wonderful view.
