The Good Shepherd stained glass window

This stained glass window, titled The Good Shepherd, is currently installed in the Potsdam Public Museum which was once the First Universalist Church of Potsdam. The window was dedicated to Edwin Atkins Merritt Sr. and his wife Eliza (Rich) Merritt by their daughter-in-law Edith Wilcox Merritt and granddaughter Esther (Merritt) Sisson in 1928. It was made by the Horwood stained glass studio in Ogdensburg, NY.
