United Presbyterian Church, Jamestown, ND

July 8, 2014


As with Carnegie-funded libraries (we got only eleven; eight community and three college), North Dakota developed late in the Akron-Auditorium phenomenon. There were a handful, however, and they were good examples. One of favorites is United Presbyterian in Jamestown, built about 1914 from the plans of Toledo, Ohio architect Harry Wachter. The blend of Gothic, Arts & Crafts, and hints of Prairie School is remarkable. In this broad elevation, you can also see the A-a-B-b rhythm from right to left.
