Baptist Church, Winsted, CT

June 1, 2014


It’s tempting to assume that the majority of Akron-Auditorium churches are either small frame buildings in rural America or large masonry piles in our major metropolitan areas. This Baptist church in Winsted, Connecticut happily disproves that. I know very little about the building, other than the obvious attachment of a radial Sunday School wing to what must be a traditional auditorium on the left. The articulation of tower-entries and stairs with larger masses—in an A-a-B-b rhythm—is very typical, almost regardless of the stylistic vocabulary, but particularly during the Richardsonian Romanesque episode.
