This is the sanctuary of the 1st Congregational Church in Litchfield. I gave some of its history yesterday. Take a look if such things are of interest to you.

The boarded window at the left rear is the result of something very rare in Connecticut, a tornado. The window to the right rear has been replaced and this one soon will be.

The Puritan simplicity is evident here.

I took quite a fix photos of the interior. Rather than run through them one at a time, I'll just put up a Shockwave gallery and you can see them now and all in one place:

This is really interesting, so simple and strict inside. Completely the opposite of our European churches. Thanks for sharing John, have a nice day :)

An excellent viewpoint and so much like many Methodist churches in the UK, I guess this 190 year old building is as historical as you can get in the US!!
