United Methodist Church

-A A +A
1924, C. J. Anderson. Southwest corner of Washington St. and 2nd Ave.

Breaking with ecclesiastical tradition, the Methodists used a Beaux-Arts Neoclassical design in purple-brown brick trimmed with pink rhyolite. The nearly square building is set on a raised basement faced in rhyolite blocks. The facade is symmetrical, with five single entrance doors on a deeply recessed porch between four brick columns with dressed stone bases.
