St. Paul’s, Troy, was founded in 1804, the first Episcopal parish in Troy, NY, and the mother church of all other Episcopal parishes in Troy. By 1826, the first church building was deemed inadequate and plans were laid to build a new church which was consecrated in 1828 by the Bishop of New York, The Right Reverend John Henry Hobart. In 1891-1893, under the eye of the chief artisan Mr. J.A. Holzer of the Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company,  a major renovation resulted in the interior which we see today. St. Paul’s is considered to be the only totally integrated Tiffany-designed interior in the United States. All but three windows were executed by the Tiffany Studios.
