Methodist Episcopal Church, Leola, PA

September 20, 2017

At the typical American corner of Main and Maple in Leola, Pennsylvania, you will still find this Methodist Episcopal (now UMC) church. Its Gothic Revival façade and nearly book-matched street elevations are very characteristic elements of an A-A church, while the slight bulge on the left hints at the Sunday school wing. One of the very “American” things buildings like this accomplish in the streetscape is holding the corner: the corner tower anchors the site and, often with other similar buildings, frames the one-point perspective down the street’s length.
