Medieval Fonts: First Congregational Church

The next medieval font of Middletown comes from the 1871 First Congregational Church. An inscription on the cornice over the main portal announces the parish's 17th-century heritage and its 19th-century building foundation, "1652 First Congregational Church 1871." I sketched a detail of "Church" above.
The script is Gothic blackletter and appropriate to the ecclesiastical subject.

Location: 41°33'36.24"N, 72°39'3.54"W
190 Court St., Middletown, CT 06457
