Temple Anshe Hesed Reform Congregation

-A A +A
1930, George B. Mayer for Charles R. Greco. 930 Liberty St.

The largest temple in Erie was designed by Cleveland architect George Mayer using variegated tan bricks and corbeling. The sanctuary at the center of the building is sheltered by a dome on a polygonal drum. Cream-colored stonework highlights the drum's cornice, and the surround of the elegant triple entrance on Liberty Street is outlined by alternating cream and brown bricks. The entrance is through a gable-roofed extension. An education-office wing is attached to the west elevation.
