Baptist Church, Plymouth, MA

July 11, 2017

The Baptists in historic Plymouth, Massachusetts had lofty visions in the 1920 when this building, or fragment of one, was constructed. This is, I believe, one of those rare examples of a phased project where the Sunday school or secondary element preceded the auditorium — except in this case the Great Depression probably dashed those intentions. You can see from this aerial view the polygonal bulge of the “chancel” and the parking lot, likely to have been the site for a sanctuary addition when finances were right. In the meantime, what was intended as a Sunday school was used for worship.

These images, by the way, come from a real estate website, which listed the property at 8 Carver Street and identified it as owned by the Salvation Army. The asking price is/was $1.6M.
