Presbyterian Church, Stamford, CT

February 8, 2017

First Presbyterian Church at Stamford, Connecticut currently occupies an exceptional 1958 building by Wallace K. Harrison, one of the pair of architects who also designed the U.N. in New York city. The church website is justifiably proud of that, their third building and is silent on the second. See why I’m interested?

Other on-line sources have satisfied at least a little of my curiosity. It was built circa 1882-1885, after the burning of the first building, and was then enlarged in 1920. But during those nearly twenty years, the congregation enjoyed this Richardsonian fantasy. See the Sunday school at the far left. Other postcard views would not have intrigued me nearly as much:
