Unitarian Memorial Church (1904)

102 Green Street

The bell tower of this English perpendicular Gothic “cathedral” reaches 185 feet above its manicured green, a particularly inspiring sight from near or far. Dedicated in memory of Rogers’ mother, Mary Eldredge (Huttleston) Rogers, the church was designed by Charles Brigham. It was built of local granite quarried near Fort Phoenix and limestone transported from Indiana. European stone cutters and craftsmen fashioned a multitude of gargoyles and other figures inside and outside the building. The breathtaking stained glass windows were designed by painter Robert Reid of New York.

The lovely Tudor style manse, now used as a Sunday school, also graces the church grounds, bringing a touch of Old England to New England.

In July and August the church sanctuary is open for tours on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.
