Calvary 2!


This is another view of Summit’s Calvary Episcopal Church.

I’m going to copy what I wrote last time, because I haven’t learned anything additional, and you probably don’t remember what I wrote anyway:

Calvary Episcopal Church was the first [religious?] congregation organized in Summit! Its first building was erected in 1854 elsewhere. Unfortunately, that church was destroyed in 1893 by a Christmas decoration fire. (Seriously, don’t leave candles unattended.) The congregation consequently moved to its current location, on the corner of Woodland and DeForest Avenues; the new building was consecrated in 1896, and it’s been there ever since.

And just for fun, here are some old photos of it, with dates largely unknown:
