Whaley Memorial Methodist Episcopal Church, Gainesville, TX

March 31, 2017

These is a decided Southern preference for the “book-matched” scheme with pedimented entries on the two street elevations. Most that I’ve encountered are/were in the Carolinas and other southeastern states. But there are some in both Louisiana and Texas. Whaley Memorial M.E. was dedicated in 1916 and stood until the early 70s when the dome developed structural problems and the building had to be demolished. The only hint of a Sunday school is the very slight extension of the right hand façade which makes that side slightly asymmetrical.
