Bryn Athyn Cathedral

Located in Montgomery County Pennsylvania and not far from Philadelphia, the Bryn Athyn Cathedral is home to the General Church of New Jerusalem (New Church).  It was constructed between the years 1913 and 1928 with work on the stained glass windows and interior decoration continuing into the early 1940s and beyond.  The building was dedicated in 1919.
