  • Saint Stephen's Episcopal Church (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

This Gothic Revival small-scaled church is covered in vertical board-and-batten. The low tower with its spire and the low-pitched roof over the nave seem almost like twentieth-century versions of Gothic features. The gable wall adjacent to the corner entrance tower exhibits a pair of buttresses that help to give some traditional weight and substance to the building. The sanctuary within has a hammer beam ceiling.
