Westminster Congregational Church, Kansas City, MO

December 25, 2013

Westminster Congregational in Kansas City looks to have been built circa 1910-1915, architect not yet known. But Kansas City is a well documented city, so the name is probably forthcoming. My guess (from the card) would have been a variation on my A-1 type, with the pulpit in the polygonal corner shown—at the corner of 36th and Walnut—and a Sunday School at the diagonally opposite corner (beyond the view of this image). Looking on google.earth, it still stands, though far larger and more complicated than this view suggests. Let’s just say I wouldn’t want the flashing contract on its roof.

The google street view reveals a sign for “Living Waters Ministries” (the Congos must have disbanded) and further on-line searching lead me to a real estate website offering this place for $575K, marked down $200K for the holidays. There can’t be much of a market for buildings like this. Depressing. But this site also includes a bunch of interior views that at least confirm my suspicions about the interior arrangement.
