Tiffany Studios was hired to make the windows. Tiffany personally designed the 1888 Good Shepherd window showing Jesus with a spider web design haloing his head to indicate God in nature. This window became a memorial to the parish founder, Elam R. Jewett, given by his nephews and nieces.

The center light represents the Good Shepherd carrying two lambs, and with His flock around Him; the side lights are vine tracery with grapes and birds in the richest colors in conventional designs. The head, hair and neck of the figure, delicate in coloring and an exquisite example of portraiture are all on one section of glass.

The two side windows are filled with a convention grape vine design, glowing with jewels and rich color.


Special thanks to Rev. David Selzer, rector of the Church of the Good Shepherd, for his cooperation,
and to Sexton Kevin Rung and Janice Beam for their cooperation in 2009
