October 24, 2008—Stearns Steeple is open! The Mead's striking Gothic Revival neighbor—the only remains of Stearns (or "College") Church, which stood on the site from 1873 to 1949—opened its doors to the public today as part of the 2008 Family Weekend celebration. Museum visitors and passersby can now enjoy a view of the steeple's interior, as well as a 3-minute slide show memorializing the once beloved church.
