About Church of the Messiah

In the 1850s, Joseph Story Fay gave the village of Woods Hole its first church and Cape Cod its first Episcopal Church. He later donated a more substantial building, the Stone Church, moving the First Church to its present adjacent location.

The First Church renovation will transform a local landmark into a facility that will provide a welcoming gathering place for Woods Hole and the greater Falmouth community.
