While traveling around the state I see several beautiful old churches and this one in Ypsilanti stood out to me. The twin steeples stand proudly over the city on the First Presbyterian Church. The historical marker on the front reads:
Originally built in 1857 with a single, central spire, the First Presbyterian Church was greatly enlarged and rededicated in 1899. Detroit architect Julius Hess redesigned the church, using the original sanctuary walls, and added a columned entrance portal and twin towers. The cupola-topped towers are reminiscent of English Baroque churches, yet the interior and overall design reflect Renaissance architecture. The rose window was made by Tiffany & Co. of New York.
