    The church was designed by Frederick Dellenbaugh and constructed privately from 1895 to 1897 through the generosity of Eliza Hartshorn, whose descendants continue to worship with us today. Situated on the Shawangunk Ridge at almost 2,000 feet in altitude, it commands breathtaking vistas of 50 miles. Its Gothic stone and wood architecture and its stained glass windows create an environment unsurpassed for meditation and worship. For this reason, the doors of the church are always open, and you are welcome to enter respectfully and experience the chapel's extraordinary peacefulness.


    Construction on Cragsmoor's landmark Stone Church was begun in 1895 under the supervision of John Keir, a Cragsmoor resident. Nearly two years later, on June 19th, 1897, the 900-pound bell in the tower was finally raised. A Latin inscription on its side reads "In Honor of the Blessed Trinity and All Saints 1897". The first service was held the next day, Sunday the 20th. The chapel, built of stone from the mountain, was designed by Frederick S. Dellenbaugh, an architect and prominent Cragsmoor resident. In memory of his wife, he also donated the rose window, which replaced an earlier version blown out in a storm in 1909. The inscription reads, "Her Smile Was Like a Benediction." The window was designed and executed by Lamb Studios in 1932.
    The Stone Church was a part of a community built by Eliza G. Hartshorn of Newport, Rhode Island, modeled on the Hospice of St. Bernard in Switzerland. The first buildings included "Rhuberg" ("Mountain Rest"), still standing to the immediate west of the chapel, and several other buildings used in the summer months by an Episcopal lay order, the Brothers of Nazareth, who cared for the sick and the deprived. Mrs. Hartshorn was introduced to the order by Father Daniel I. Odell, the rector of a church in Rhode Island and later the rector of the Church of the Annunciation in Philadelphia.


    Here is the archway overlooking the mountain ranges
    very popular for weddings and such
    the site says $700 donation gets the church for the day of the wedding and an additional day for rehersal
