The Episcopalian's needed a church so they decided to build one. About forty families built the church. Then on June 27th, 1868 the parish voted to erect a tower. The rose window in the front of the building was built in 1925. The style of the church is Gothic. The stone that they used to build the building was found in Leverett. The church is based on St. Michael's church in Oxford, England. Grace Church has both a tower of pre-Gothic origin and a spire typically Gothic. These towers were probably necessary for defense, originally, but now they represent the aspirations and hopes of man. There are several crosses out side of the church. There is one on top of the tower and one above the front entrance and one above the rose window. There were termites that ate through the wooden poles that held the church up and the people in the church thought that the church would collapse on them. They rebuilt the poles by inserting steal beams in the hollowed poles, now the church is secure. Reverend Daniel Huntington suggested the name "Grace Episcopal Church" on March 2, 1868.
This is a window of St. Michael.
Grace Church is attended by many. It still stands where it was originally built. Several items in and around the church have been renovated, refurnished and reupholstered. Several items in and around the church are very old, however they still stand and support The Grace Episcopal Church.
