In any visit to Potsdam, you don't want to miss seeing this beautiful red sandstone edifice on "the island." Virtually unchanged since I sang in the choir 60 years ago, this classic Anglican parish reflects the best of Potsdam.

Sit in the church and feel the peace and beauty of this architectural gem. Sitting on Fall Island under tall ancient trees in the middle of the Racquet River it is beautiful to photograph.
