Long Description:
The only Gothic Congregational church in greater Hartford. Built in 1865 and designed by Patrick Keely.

When Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens) lived in Connecticut, this was his church. He was very close friends with the first pastor, the Rev. Joseph Hopkins Twichell, who was referenced in Twain's book, 'A Tramp Abroad.' Harriet Beecher Stowe was known to occasionally attend this church also.
