St. Agnes Catholic Church

-A A +A
c. 1950. Southeast corner of Gunnison Ave. (U.S. 285) and 6th St.

Unusual Art Deco–inspired ornament of raised panels with raspberry-colored paint appears on the north entry facade of this stuccoed adobe structure. Around and above the door, in the stepped gable end wall, a stylized cross incorporates a stained glass window. Flanking the entrance are two additional stained glass windows, surrounded by Y-shaped panels reminiscent of chalices. An open bell tower sits atop a rear corner.
