Brief Description of Subject: The centerpiece and largest of three windows representing historical scenes from Mackinac Island. Depicts William Ferry the Presbyterian missionary who headed the Island’s Indian Mission from 1823 to 1834 preaching to several Indians, with the tops of teepees in the background. The opalescent stained glass is an American technique in which designers mix multiple colors to produce a more opaque effect. Panes of glass are then layered into the design to add to the color’s depth. J & R Lamb Studios of New York, operational since 1857, are the oldest continuously operating stained glass studio in the US.

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.
