Union Avenue Christian Church

Updated in December of 2020 with new images of the front fašade and bell tower.

On the west side of Union, Union Avenue Christian Church holds down the less built-upápart of the street (it’s joined by Soldan’s athletic fields).

Again, it’s a masterpiece of Romanesque Revival, though with muted gray limestone.

The front portals are magnificent, and provide a grand entrance to the church.

The stonework continues around onto the south side of the church.

The bell tower reminds me vaguely of the Campanile of St. Mark’s in Venice, though in different building materials.

What is so fascinating is to look at the church’s neighbors; some of them are still there, like Windermere Place, but those institutions and small streets along Delmar are gone.
