Bertram G. Goodhue’s designs for the Panama-California Exposition of 1915 in San Diego may have inspired the Aberdeen, South Dakota, architect who probably designed this well-proportioned, appealing brick and stone church, best characterized as Spanish Colonial Revival. The church’s gables and corner tower finish with a curved parapet, and the windows in the gables have elaborate surrounds. There is also some Sullivanesque influence in the decoration on the tower.
