Window Shape: 2 (rectangle)

Date of Window: 1868

Subject/Title of Window: Fleur-de-lis

Brief Description of Subject: This is one of the original windows installed at the time the church was built in 1868. When the new memorial windows were installed in 1905, these windows were left in the kitchen at the southwest corner and in the pastor's study in the northwest corner. The furnace room was between these two rooms. This northwest corner was later turned into a part of the kitchen, the cake room, with a sink and water installed in the middle. After a fire in 1943, this window was placed in the Fellowship Hall in the northwest corner whre the memorial window was displayed.

It had clusters of purple grapes around the border but those could not be saved by the people who mounted the window for hanging. The blue is not part of the original, but a trace of the grapes is at each corner.


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.
