Clermont Presbyterian Church

-A A +A
1858. Southeast corner of Larrabee and McGregor streets
  • Clermont Presbyterian Church (David Gebhard and Gerald Mansheim)

This church is pure, classic Greek Revival; thin brick pilasters project from the wall surfaces, and a fascinating horizontal row of diamond-shaped patterns runsacross the entablature. The tower with its tall, thin spire and four corner finials could be read as either classical or Gothic.
