Episcopal Church of the Messiah

Glens Falls, New York

The Church of the Messiah is one of the finest examples of the Gothic Revival style of architecture in the City of Glens Falls. Designed by noted 19th century architect, John W. Summers, the Church fortunately survived the devastating downtown fire of 1864.

The Church of the Messiah is part of the significant Three Squares Historic District listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. The District is easily recognizable by the unique stone architecture of the buildings. The preservation and maintenance of these buildings is treasured by the greater Glens Falls community and represents a valued historic local legacy.

“Our parish has struggled since COVID hit and we had no idea how we were going to pay for urgently needed electrical repairs to our historic church. The grant was truly a blessing and we are so deeply appreciative.”

M. Pendergess and the Church of the Messiah Grants Committee
