JEC's Late Summer Tour

Recently the JEC took a trip up the Connecticut River Valley to take some photographs of places that Edwards spent his time.

Here are a few of our finds, for your enjoyment. It was a rainy day so the lighting is lousy, but you'll get the general idea.


S. Windsor, CT.


The site of Timothy and Esther Edwards' Homestead

The graveyard at Timothy Edwards' church

Esther Edwards' grave (JE's mother)


Enfield, CT. (formerly Enfield, MA.)


The Congregational Church, Enfield, CT.



Northampton, MA.

Stoddard Homestead

Jerusha Edwards' Grave

David Brainerd's Grave


ps/STOP PRESS: We'll have big news over the next couple of weeks, with respect to a specially negotiated discount on Yale volumes, some real cool t-shirts, and some newly published works....watch this space...

Discounts on Yale volumes? Hallelujah!! Bring it on, we poor grad students long for such mercy.

Thanks guys! These are great!

I'm currently delivering a Jonathan Edwards Seminar on Sunday nights at my church. We're covering The End for Which God Created the World, The Nature of True Virtue, Freedom of the Will, and Religious Affections.

I'm also exposing the congregation to Edwards's life. These photos will help make the history come alive!

Wow, I might need to plan an Edward's trip myself (to those historical sites). Thanks for sharing this with us.
