  • Determined to get the view, my husband walked the 94 steps up to the steeple to take photos. Was met by caring and careful staff in two or three locations as he climbed Photos worth the climb.  more »
  • Attended once, for a special prayer group in a good sunny Saturday, simple and traditional protestant house of prayer.  more »
  • Good message for locals and visitors. Second summer we've visited and found it to be friendly both times. .  more »

  • The congregational church is just outside the center of town. The tower is open during the summer and early fall. The walk to the top is worth the effort, from the steeple you have unblocked views in all four directions.
