Park Congregational Church

-A A +A
1906, T. Robert Wieger. 803 10th Ave. (southwest corner of 8th St., on west side of Lincoln Park)

This Tudor Revival exterior was constructed around an existing 1880 church. Buff pressed brick walls rise out of a raised sandstone foundation. The sanctuary is up a halfflight staircase to a porch with a triple Tudor arch and massive stone columns. The gable end above the entry is capped by a metal Norman cross, and a small, round turret projects from the northeast sanctuary corner. The bell tower has a stepped parapet, which extends around the education wing to the south. The dark-stained oak interior is lit by fine stained glass and has an openbeamed ceiling and a floor sloped to the chancel on the west. Since the Congregationalists moved elsewhere in 1956, this has become the Greeley Four-Square Church.
