St. John’s, Ogdensburg, is Gothic architecture, dating back to the 19th century. The stained glass windows are simply magnificent, and harken back to a time when they were used to tell the stories of Christ and his goodly band of Apostles. Nestled in each corner of the nave are two beautifully appointed side chapels–one dedicated to the Holy Family and the other to our Armed Forces. There’s even a Bishop’s Throne. With its imposing four-pointed bell tower, and carefully manicured campus, St. John’s Church houses a number of historic treasures–a hand-carved baptistery, a gold-framed, painted portrait of the first Rector (dating back to the 1820s), and centuries old “holy hardware” of every imaginable shape and size.
