Harrold Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church

-A A +A
1964, Roach Walfish and Lettrich. PA 136 at PA 3097 (Baltzer Meyer Pike Rd.), 2 miles southwest of Greensburg

Built to house a long-established Lutheran congregation, the Greensburg architectural firm gave a fresh interpretation to Gothic forms with a dramatic, eye-catching roofline that sweeps upward at both ends of the nave. The church is clad in dark brown brick and has steel beam buttresses along the side elevations. The interior has a central aisle flanked by smaller side aisles, and is highlighted by the soaring beams of the roof.
