Stained Glass Window Tours to Color Weekend in Norfolk Aug. 3,4,& 5

Stained glass lovers, rejoice! All three of Norfolk’s churches will be open at various times during Weekend in Norfolk, August 3, 4 and 5, to allow visitors to see their fabulous stained glass windows.

Church of Christ Congregational plans to have its Battell Chapel open most of the day on Saturday for viewing windows by Louis Comfort Tiffany and Maitland Armstrong. The Tiffany windows, located in a curved wall, depict the four seasons, two on either side of a woodland stream scene.

Also on Saturday, Church of the Immaculate Conception will be opening to visitors who want to see its windows. These are by Franz Meyer & Co. of Munich and were shipped to Norfolk from the factory in the mid-1920’s. The windows may also be seen after the church service on Sunday.

On Sunday, Church of the Transfiguration is having an open house for window viewing immediately after its service, which all are invited to attend. The windows are by several different artists; subjects include the innkeeper in the story of the Good Samaritan and the Transfiguration.

Other stained glass will be on view at the Norfolk Library during its art show and other events, and the Manor House Inn, especially on Sunday afternoon when the Inn will be serving lemonade on the lawn.

Weekend in Norfolk, August 3, 4 and 5, is a three-day, town-wide art, music and nature festival. Events run the gamut from art exhibits to hiking, world-class music to two ice cream socials, farm tours and kite-making lessons to the opportunity to get married on the Village Green. New events are being added all the time. Visit for details.
