Grace Episcopal Church - Orange, NJ

This church was originally constructed in 1857, making it among the oldest in the city. Various wings / additions were added and demolished over the years, but fortunately for us (and future generations) the main building remains relatively unchanged.

The original photograph dates back to the winter of 1905. The horses and carriages were for a wedding party. The large building in the background of the "then" picture was the Orange YMCA, which has since been razed and replaced with the current building.

Today, it's known as the Church of the Epiphany.

The "now" photo was taken in March of 2007.
