Tiffany identification

Richmond, Indiana, is home to an impressive collection of Louis Comfort Tiffany stained glass windows, and four sites within a five-block area offer a glimpse of this national art treasure.  Combined, the four sites comprise Indiana’s Stained Glass Trail, a self-guided tour available year-round and free to the public.

 

The Stained Glass Trail includes the Morrisson-Reeves Library, which boasts the first Tiffany windows installed in Richmond. Dedicated 1895, they were commissioned to honor three generations of the Morrisson family by the great grandchildren of the library’s founder, Robert Morrisson.
