Hellenic Orthodox Church of the Annunciation Tour

Sat, Aug 20
12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Admission starts at: $7
Hellenic Orthodox Church of the Annunciation • 146 West Utica Street, Buffalo New York 14222


Built as the North Presbyterian Church in 1907, the English Country Gothic style building was purchased by the Hellenic Orthodox Church in 1952.  Visitors will view the grand hammer beam ceiling interlaced with Greek crosses in the coffering.  The iconostasis with royal doors at the front of the church includes icons of the Annunciation, the Transfiguration and the Mother of God. The many stained glass windows by Lamb, Goodhue and Hardman studios portray figures from both the Old and New Testament. In 2002, the church was restored after an arson fire. The 2003 north transept window by Lamb Studios depicts Michael the Archangel distinguishing the fire. Annunciation Church is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a Buffalo City Landmark.

This tour meets in the church parking lot near the side door of the building. Annunciation Church is located at 146 West Utica St., Buffalo, NY 14222.  Parking is available in the church lot off of West Utica St. This tour is approximately one hour in length, and is mostly indoors with air conditioning.
