Building Name: Oneida Gospel Church

City: Oneida

Window Shape: 2 (rectangle)

Subject/Title of Window: Fragments

Brief Description of Subject: These are fragments of the original windows, with the names of early Oneida pioneers: Ephraim Stockwell, Emanuel and Rebecca De Graff, John and Emma Orinda Strange.

The windows are from the original Oneida Presbyterian Church, built from 1867-1870. Sold to Oneida Gospel Church in 1950's, who tore down original building in 1966 and built current one, keeping the six windows, which were restored at the time by Charlotte Art Glass Company. Of the six windows, two are in storage [?], and four are in sanctuary. Originally, all windows had names of pioneer families who had donated them, but now only two do: the Preston and the McMullen windows. The church kept these fragments when the windows were restored, and has vague intentions of returning them to their proper place.

Type of Glass and Technique: Opalescent Glass

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
