Presbyterian Church

-A A +A
1900. W. 5th St., between Elm and Cedar streets

The steep roofs and, above all, the pointed windows and doors pull the viewer toward the Gothic, but the two hip-roofed towers (one lower, the other a higher, corner entrance tower) suggest the French Romanesque. The stone walls of the building are so finely cut and joined that they almost appear to be artificial concrete Art Stone.
