First Methodist Church of Delta

-A A +A
1910, Samuel A. Bullard. 199 E. 5th St. (northeast corner of Meeker St.) (NR)

Neo-Tudor arches and parapets prevail on this beige brick church with a foundation, capstone, and doorway and window trim of Windgate sandstone from nearby Escalante Canyon. A pyramidal roof with a central cupola rests on parapeted gables with crenelated towers at the streetside corners. The square sanctuary with stained glass from the Midland Glass Company of Omaha is an example of the so-called Akron plan popular around 1900. The Hinners eighteen-rank organ and the original ornately carved oak pews from the American Seating Company adorn the interior. The 1891 cornerstone is from an earlier church on the site.
