Views of the Fairhaven Unitarian Memorial Church

Sculpture and Exterior

 

Master craftsmen from all of Europe were employed to create this church. It is told that the faces of many of the townspeople were used as the subjects for the many many sculptures that adorn the exterior. Sadly, time has started to erase many of the features of these wonderful works of art.

      

 

 

The bronze doors were inspired by Ghiberti's Doors at the Duomo in Florence. 
These massive doors are opened each Sunday for service, and are perfectly balanced for opening and closing.
