Unity Church – North Easton

Within a few blocks of the H. H. Richardson Historic District is Unity Church, built by the Ames family in 1875, and designed in the Gothic Revival Style by architect and publisher John Ames Mitchell. It includes an ornate oak frieze including sculptures of twenty-two angels playing music, carved by Johannes Kirchmayer (1860–1930), and two notable stained-glass windows, “Angel of Help,” and “Figure of Wisdom,” both by John LaFarge (1835–1910). “Figure of Wisdom,” completed in 1901, is the largest stained-glass work created by Lafarge.

    Thank you Laura. I have not been consistent in posting. The sketches are completed but I have been scanning when I have time. I am trying to get better.
