First Congregational Church

-A A +A
1919, Josselyn and Dodd. Northwest corner of Washington Ave. and 17th St. S.E.

The entrance of this Colonial Revival church with a steeple has a two-story gabled porch. The detailing, ranging from the stone quoining at the corners to the pedimented entrance and arched windows, has all been “correctly” and sensitively carried out.
