Long Description:
This is a beautiful Eastern Orthodox Church, having no less than five onion domes atop the church itself and even a dome on a small maintenance building to the rear of the church. Each dome is topped with an orthodox cross. The large dome, eight sided, has arched windows on all sides while the rest of the building has many arched windows as well as four rose windows.

Apparently, the church holds bi-monthly services and sunday school instead of weekly services, as well as performing baptisms, weddings and funerals.
