We are fortunate to have six windows that are original Tiffany windows, made by the Tiffany Company, plus six windows made of Tiffany glass. Tiffany used unusual construction techniques and effects that produced stunning results. These included: cutting the glass first, then cutting the leading; use of strong colors; layering colored glass over another colored glass; application of color in streaks or dry-brushing the color on the surface; pulling and pushing glass while it cools to produce a Drapery Glass. These techniques and effects are well represented in the wonderful windows, treasured at First Presbyterian Church.
You may come and see the windows “in person”. Individuals or groups are always welcome (for large groups, call to arrange a time in advance) and may come from 10 am- 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday, a self-guided audio interpretive wand system is available. Allow at least 45 minutes for viewing.
Last year, we had hundreds of visitors from all over the world. These guests came to view the windows and also tour the Erie Canal and the Erie Canal Discovery Center.
