Union Congregational Church

-A A +A
1883. 403 Maroon Ave. (northeast corner of 4th St.)

Eastlake trim adorns this frame, front-gabled Carpenter Gothic church. The lovely square corner tower tapers to an open bell cupola with an arched cutout, elaborate brackets, and a balustrade. Horizontal clapboard siding contrasts with vertical trim boards. A tripartite lancet group high in the front wall corresponds to three double-hung windows at the first-floor level. The entry is protected by a Gothic-arched canopy and the bargeboard is decorated with trefoil cutouts.
