The Episcopal Church of the Atonement was founded in 1888 and began worship in this distinctive red stone building in 1890. Though the building has been expanded twice—to more than double its original capacity—it has always maintained the English Gothic style from its first architect, Henry Ives Cobb. The sanctuary, both grand and intimate, contains a booming pipe organ. Below the floor lies a columbarium where the remains of parishioners rest. The Parish House was added in 1924, and the sanctuary's stained-glass windows were gradually installed from 1929 to 1946.
Visitors will be greeted by knowledgeable tour guides, who will also have photos of the parish through the years. Guided tours are not mandatory, however.
