First Presbyterian Church

-A A +A
1911, R. G. Vance; later additions and renovations. S. Wayne Ave. at W. 11th St.

This Classical Revival buff-colored brick building has a two-story central block with a colossal portico of six fluted Corinthian columns, an entablature, and a pediment. This is flanked by recessed wings and a two-story side pavilion to the east. Echoing the portico treatment, the central entrance is through a pair of wood-paneled doors flanked by Corinthian pilasters and surmounted by a frieze, dentil cornice, and pediment. The eastern pavilion's monumental brick pilasters are topped by wooden Corinthian capitals and a pediment. A fire in 1983 burned some of the interior, which has been restored.
