18th Century Baptist Church: Providence, Rhode Island

First Baptist Church - Providence, Rhode Island
Shown in an engraving that appeared in an issue of The Massachusetts Magazine in 1789. This church still dominates the 18th century skyline of College Hill.
My maternal grandfather was a Baptist minister and he would have loved this. I've never seen such a tall steeple on a Baptist church and I'm so glad this historic one is still standing.
