University Methodist Episcopal Church, Austin, TX

June 26, 2017

As a grad student at UT-Austin many, many years ago, I walked past University UMC almost daily; there were parking places to be found in the few block west of the church. Fascinated by its Texan version of the Richardsonian, I went inside one day and admired what had obvious been a full-fledged A-A interior of the A-1 sort. Austin is such a thriving community (as state capitol and home of the university) that the original 1907 building has been expanded several times. The original architect, however, was Frederick M. Mann of St Louis, Missouri.

A 2007 initiative to restore the building for its centennial has given it an almost youthful appearance.
