Eighth Church of Christ, Scientist

Copyright St. Louis Patina -8783

This Christian Scientist church is interesting; it is primarily a Gothic Revival structure, but its front portico has echoes of the Romanesque or even the Renaissance. I also find it interesting, as earlier churches by this denomination had actively rejected traditional church design (see the former locations off of Gravois, Page or Russell), and going more towards Beaux Arts. This building seems to sit right on the border, both in Clayton and the city. The architects were Albert August Aegerter & Norman I. Bailey, and it was finished in 1929.
