Methodist Episcopal Church, Binghamton, NY

As a Yankee, Centenary-Chenango Street United Methodist Church in Binghamton, New York presents me with a friendly and familiar face. This could easily be the “poster child” for the entire project. Perhaps it’s the excellent photography (which I’ve borrowed without permission from the church website; sorry) of a typical A-A church or the scheme, which I’ve seen dozens of times..

It seems to have resulted from the merging of two congregations, a frequent occurrence in mid-sized communities with multiple congregations of mainstream Protestant denominations. And the church website shows numerous photographs of a restoration in progress, so kudos to them.

The corner entry and book-matched street facades suggest a D-1 or D-2 interior, which is beautifully borne out by these images:

And the Akron Sunday School is (I hope) behind this presumably movable partition:
