Baptist Church, Monmouth, IL

August 18, 2017

Monmouth has several Baptist church, including the self-styled Maple City Baptist with multiple sites. Calvary, shown here, is now situated several blocks south of the city center, and this building is among the missing. Its basic box-like shape is relieved by the prominent though planar entry tower, a gabled dormer on the long side elevation, and an almost invisible set of steps to the Sunday school portion at the far right. I like it and regret its disappearance.
