Methodist Episcopal Church, Waynesburg, PA

February 4, 2016


One of several J. C. Fulton churches from the first decade of the 20th century.

It’s unfair to say that Fulton’s designs were products of a formula; that’s pretty much what the Akron-Auditorium plan is: variations on a theme. From a cursory view of those represented in my postcard collection, they are remarkably similar in size. What seems to vary is his response to site conditions, including the accommodation of slope.

From a website about this church:

Fulton designed five county court houses: Somerset and Butler in Pennsylvania; Monongalia, Barbour and Doddridge in West Virginia.  At California University of Pennsylvania, his work includes the east and west wings of Old Main, Dixon Hall and a library annex that has an interior dome similar to the Waynesburg church.  In Uniontown he designed Hotel Mahoney and Uniontown High School, and in Connellsville he created Hotel Wyman and the Dun & Paine Building, considered the finest in town.

His ecclesiastical work includes Trinity Evangelical Lutheran (Connellsville), First Presbyterian (California), First Baptist (Meadville), United Presbyterian Church (Apollo), Calvary Presbyterian (Indiana), First Presbyterian (Windber), and the Methodist Episcopal and Presbyterian churches in Fairmont, WV.
