Grace Episcopal Church was built in 1846 and is a perfect example of Gothic Revival architecture in the city. The Gothic sanctuary is rich in religious symbolism. Centerpieces are the altar window, which displays the sacraments of the church, and the great entrance window, which depicts the Great Commission by which Christ sends his followers into the world to spread the Gospel. The clerestory windows record twelve major events in the life of Christ and relate them to institutions in today's world.
