Christ Episcopal Church in New Bern

I visited this church yesterday and was fortunate enough to be able to tour the grounds. Christ Church located in New Bern is one of North Carolina's earliest congregation - the first church was finished in 1750. The craftsmanship is superb and if you didn't know any better you would think it was new. This staircase with it's magnificent stain glass windows is quite grand, leading upstairs to the balcony and the pipe organ comprised of 1397 pipes.
