Christian Science Church, Eureka, CA

May 26, 2017

I seriously doubted this building exists or that it might be an example of the A-A, but there it was on a realty site. But its unorthodoxy, its architectural humility, is refreshing. So I thought to share with you a forthright piece of architecture as a counterpoint to our own age of sham and pretense. Happily, this building has survived and has been recently on the real estate market.

It’s also worth noting that the congregation continued the spirit of this 1914 building [at 1039 H Street] when the time came to replace it: take a look at the real estate listing for their second church home, also a design by architect Franklin Georgeson. They must have been satisfied with his services. Gives me hope to continue teaching young people on their way to a professional life.

So much for my editorial du jour.
