Tiffany Windows at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, Franklin, Tennessee

web franklin

On my third trip to Nashville, Tenn., I ventured out to the quaint town of Franklin. I had heard so many great things about Franklin from friends and also from author and business coach Dan Miller, who hosts my favorite podcast, the 48 Days Podcast, . Miller, who lives and works in Franklin, talks often about what a wonderful town he lives in. Please see more text and photos below.

Would you like to see a photo of some of the beautiful stained glass at the National Cathedral in Washington D.C.? Please check out this post

One of my friends told me, if you do get to Franklin, you have to visit the episcopal church in town. The building’s Tiffany windows are something you have to see. The stained glass windows at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church did not disappoint. Its windows are a cacophony of light and color. Franklin is about a 20 minute drive from Nashville.

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church is full of history. According to the church’s Web site, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church was founded on August 27, 1827. The church edifice was not started until 1831 and when completed in 1834. Less than three decades later, Franklin was occupied by Union forces which used the church as a barracks. The church’s Web site goes on to say that following the bloody Battle of Franklin, November 30, 1864, St. Paul’s was used as a hospital for wounded troops.

The windows I photographed that are shown here are just some of the Tiffany windows in the church. According to the church, “The eight Tiffany windows at St. Paul’s are the creation of Louis Comfort Tiffany, son of New York’s Tiffany Jewelry Company Founder, Charles Tiffany.”

I have seen stained glass windows at many churches though few match the beauty and workmanship on display at St. Paul’s.
