Closed in the afternoon on New Year's Day, we must be satisfied with the appearance. The building was built in 1857 when it was the Stow Congregational Church. The design is in the early English Gothic style, and the quality of the stone carvings just right shows the extraordinary skills of the masons. The front porch and windows are particularly impressive. Four arches are supported on pillars and decorated with white stone carvings of grains, fruits and small animals. I think the arched windows with stone mullions and lattice works are even more impressive. The building is built from bluestone and limestone.
