Trinity UMC, Des Moines, IA

- -for archive- -Photo by: BOB NANDELL/The Register A view outside Trinity United Methodist Church, 1548 Eighth St. in Des Moines.

I’d have sworn that this church was already in the database, but apparently not. It showed up — as so many have done recently — as baggage in a google image search.

Trinity United Methodist Church stands at 1548 Eighth Street in Des Moines and was added to the National Register in 1998. The congregation has recently received a grant from the Iowa Economic Development Authority for restoration of a stained glass dome that doesn’t appear from the outside.

Des Moines architects Proudfoot, Bird & Rawson are a familiar name and are likely to have done more than this example. A photocopy of the original working drawing appears in the NR nomination. Mentally rotate this 180° to fit the aerial view above.
