In 1695, these qualities led 39 pilgrims to start an Anglican parish in a Quaker city. In 1727, the small congregation transformed their small building into the most beautiful, majestic and grand sanctuary in the colonies, and that vision, courage and faith assures that the church still stands.
In 1754, master builder Robert Smith constructed the highest structure in the colonies in the church’s majestic steeple.
