City: Northville

Window Shape: 3 (arched)

Subject/Title of Window: Latin Cross

Brief Description of Subject: Description of this window, entitled "Latin Cross," is from the book "Northville First United Methodist Church 1834 - 2009."

"This form of cross is the best known in the western world, but it is appropriate anywhere. It can properly be used by any religious group who believe in Jesus Christ, and his death on the cross. Through general usage the cross has become the symbol of Christianity."

According to Church records, the two identical windows were designed by Church member James Frisbie and donated by him in honor of his children. One window is blocked by the organ and was not photographed.

The MSGC is a constantly evolving database. Not all the data that has been collected by volunteers has been sorted and entered. Not every building has been completely documented.

All images in the Index are either born-digital photographs of windows or buildings or are scans of slides, prints, or other published sources. These images have been provided by volunteers and the quality of the material varies widely.

If you have any questions, additions or corrections, or think you can provide better images and are willing to share them, please contact
