1) Immanuel Church
Bell Tower Restoration!
Constructed between 1863 and 1867, the church was designed by noted architect Richard Upjohn, who was a personal friend of the pastor. Upjohn was responsible for popularizing the Gothic Revival style in American ecclesiastic architecture. His most famous work is New York City's Trinity Church on lower Broadway, built some twenty years earlier than this church. With its buttresses, pointed arches, and belfry tower, the church recalls Medieval forms. The Immanuel parish was established in 1798 by Dr. Samuel Cutler.
The State of Vermont, Division of Historic Preservation is contributing
one third of the cost, but $30,000 needs to be raised. Upcoming benefits in 2006
and 2007 are listed on the Immanuel
Church web page of Virtuous.com including dinners, concerts and an auction.
