South Broadway Christian Church

-A A +A
1891, Edwin J. Miller and Wenzel J. Janisch. 23 Lincoln St. (northwest corner of Ellsworth Ave.)

The dominant element of this Romanesque Revival church, a crenelated square bell tower surmounted by a smaller round turret, soars above walls of quarry-face rhyolite with round arches. Carved stone adorns the gable peaks, buttress caps, and recessed entrance. Decorative wood accentuates the steep peaks of rhythmic rows of gables and dormers.
