United Brethren, Cedar Rapids, IA

June 30, 2014

Many of the newer denomination have taken on the architectural imagery of the time surrounding their origin. Christian Science may be the best example, especially given the role played by the “Mother Church” in Boston. The Church of the United Brethren was also drawn to classicism. This example in Cedar Rapids does much of my work for me: identifying the architects (Dieman & Fiske) and narrowing the date. The watercolor or gouache perspective is also rather nice.
