Christ Episcopal Church, Stratford (1858)

October 17th, 2010 Posted in Churches, Gothic, Stratford

Built in 1857-1858, the current Christ Episcopal Church in Stratford was preceded by two earlier church buildings. The first was built in 1724 and was replaced by the second, built in 1743, which stood just to the north of the current church, which was designed by architect Henry Dudley. Christ Church is the oldest parish of the Episcopal Diocese of Connecticut, tracing its origins to 1707. In 1972, the interior of the church was reconfigured to its present arrangement.

    The golden rooster at top of spire is from the Revolutionary era church building. It was used for target practice at the time and is a modern symbol for the parish.
