Former Kingshighway Presbyterian Church

How I missed the majestic former Kingshighway Presbyterian Church in the past is beyond me (maybe I was keeping my eyes on the road in what is a particularly wild stretch of that major artery), but I finally got a chance to photograph what is easily one of the largest and finest examples of Romanesque Revival architecture in St. Louis. I would suspect it dates from the 1890s, and it merged with another congregation in University City in the 1950s. It is now home to Wayman African Methodist Episcopal Church.

    I haven’t been by there in a while, but I recognized this building immediately.. They often have some fairly “militant” things on their sign, which caught my attention many times…

      Now I’m intrigued! I didn’t see anything on the sign that jumped out at me.
