First Methodist Church

-A A +A
1914. Northeast corner of 1st Ave. N. and 10th St.

The inspiration for this church was the Pantheon, with a side look at the work of the sixteenth-century Italian architect Palladio. Added to this classical inheritance is an attached campanile-like tower that is surmounted by pedimented openings on all four faces and an octagonal drum and dome.
