Trinity Evangelical Lutheran c. 1854

Originally located on Transit Road near Muegel Road, this typical country church served the German-speaking Lutheran residents of East Amherst, NY, until the 1960s. As inscribed above its door, it originally served as the Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church. With the exception of the altar window, all the stained glass windows and the first four pews in the church are the originals. The altar window is a modern adaptation created by Frohe Art Glass—the very firm that created the original windows.
