Westminster Presbyterian Church, Harrisburg, PA

July 7, 2017

Unlike Idlewild Presbyterian in Memphis, which I know only through an architect’s rendering, Westminster Presbyterian in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania exists in these two versions — a good thing because it has been demolished. The diagonal emphasis implies a type “D” sanctuary which may or may not have enjoyed an adjacent Sunday school wing.

It stood empty and open to the weather for many years until the church finally collapsed. The site is still an empty lot. The church was an impressive Gothic Revival brownstone building. The nave was focused on a chancel/choir area in one corner of the room, accessible by a wide set of steps. The main entrance to the church was in the opposite corner, opening from the intersection of the two streets.”
