Signed and inscribed by Frank Gross on front flyleaf ('9-2009, Dear Ruth & Edward - I hope you find this new book of some interest, Frank'). 236 pp. Explore the Genesee Valley with Phyllis Kitt through her photographs and brief histories of churches in this picturesque area of New York State. This collection of architectural structures is as diverse as the denominations in the region. Some selections include: the spectacular Neo-Gothic St. Michael's Catholic Church in Rochester, the Cobblestone Church in Childs (the oldest cobblestone church in North America), the Greek Revival Brooks Grove Methodist Church at the Genesee Country Village and Museum, and the Romanesque-influenced First Universalist Church in Rochester. The locations of 104 churches and chapels range from rural villages untouched by time, to larger bustling cities. Embark on a pleasant journey of discovery through Kitt's history-laden text accompanied by full color images.
