Caption: The State and National Register-listed First Universalist Church is the surviving masterpiece of Claude Bragdon, Rochester's most innovative early-20th century architect. In its architecture may be found an intriguing mix of symbolism, ranging from traditional Biblical iconography to stylized natural and mystical motifs. Along with the building itself, Bragdon designed the pews and other church furniture, nearly all of which remains in the church today.
Bragdon designed the lower windows. The upper windows are from another church. They were all restored by Pike Stained Glass Studio in 1990s.
