St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, New Britain (1922)

January 30th, 2011 Posted in Churches, Gothic, New Britain

St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in New Britain began in 1836 and the first church building was located on East Main Street. This small wooden structure, later relocated to become St. Mary’s Schoolhouse, was succeeded by a more elaborate wood second church, built in 1848 on the corner of West Main and Washington Streets. Enlarged in 1859, it was replaced by the current granite church, built in 1921 and consecrated the following year. The church has stained glass windows that were originally in the second church building, as well as ones commissioned from the studio of William Morris.

    I am an Anglican from St.peter’s Anglican in Falmouth, Trelawny, Jamaica.

    I am here at CCSU until August 4. How can I get to the church? I have no address.
