Pine Street Presbyterian Church, Harrisburg, PA

March 15, 2018

Pine Street Presbyterian materialized while searching for something completely different: a photograph of #124 Pine Street, a house in Harrisburg designed by architect William Halsey Wood (another of my various interests). I found two postcards that show the 200 Block of Pine but not the 100 Block; at least they establish the character of the neighborhood, if not the house itself.

This church anchors the northwest corner of the intersection of Pine and Third streets. What you can’t see from here is the polygonal end of the church, out of sight at the far right; see the card below for another point of view. It appears to be an Akron Sunday school configuration. It’s unclear how that space might be/have been connected with the auditorium, however. The church dates from about 1892, which puts it in the A-A era.

Interesting that the roof ridge of the Sunday school is taller than that of the auditorium.
