Methodist Episcopal Church, Pittston, PA

October 6, 2016


Pittston is a “Rust Belt” town in Pennsylvania’s Susquahanna Valley. Like Williamsport and Wilkes-Barre, these were prosperous communities when the iron industry was in high gear. Now that steel production has been significantly exported (to China), several of its prominent mainline Protestant churches are struggling or closed. The Cincinnati firms of Brown & Davis and Brown Burton & Davis were active here; in this case it was B&D, whose name appears faintly at the bottom of this architectural rendering. The Sunday School is clear in the google.maps aerial view but barely has a presence on the street. Look for it at the corner of Broad and church streets, just one block off Main.

Here are two others views:

Across the Susquahanna in West Pittston, there is a fine Presbyterian church, though it’s unclear to me how the Sunday School connects with the auditorium.
