Methodist Church, Niagara Falls, ON

October 19, 2016

There seem to be — in our database, at least — a high percentage of Canada’s A-A churches in Ontario, especially Southern Ontario which was within the market area of several U.S. architects active in the A-A movement. Practitioners in both Buffalo and Detroit extended their practice across the border.


The Morrison Street Methodist Church, in Niagara Falls (theirs, not ours) sports the radial Akron configuration, albeit stuffed into a rectangle. It has only a single story, however, and the raised clerestory we’d expect to find. Unless there’s something extraordinary going on inside, this is most likely a C-1.

Stone Magazine for March 1920 announced that the congregation were preparing to build a $100,000 facility, which may have replaced this one.
