St. James Episcopal Church

-A A +A
1889. 386 4th St. (southeast corner of Park Ave.) (NR)

This picture-perfect Queen Anne Style church has a shingled, mansard-roofed open tower housing a bell from the Blymer Bell Foundry of Cincinnati. The church's rough block base and diminutive buttresses of tawny sandstone are topped with contrasting shingle cladding. Repetition of a triangle and Gothic arch motif in the facade promotes a subtle harmony, undisturbed by the sympathetic sandstone and shake-shingle addition.
