Window Two.jpg

The Queen Anne Window is the second window in the story. The window illustrates four Six Nations Chiefs meeting Her Majesty, Queen Anne, in England in 1710. Peter Schuyler, Mayor of the Town of Albany, introduced the Chiefs to the Queen, wishing to encourage them to remain allied to the British military cause. This meeting led to the building of Her Majesty’s Royal Chapel of the Mohawks – the only Royal Chapel that exists outside of the United Kingdom. The original log building was commissioned in 1711, and the Queen provided a silver communion service and a bible, along with other furnishings. The window shows symbols of the Six Nations aligned with a cross, a small chapel, and ships that symbolize the trip from the Old World to the New.
