Methodist Episcopal Church, Spring City, PA

September 18, 2018

The vast majority of A-A churches were built as such: the client wanted an Akron-Auditorium solution; the architect responded—with varying degrees of sophistication and success. There a very few that eased their way into Akron-icity, with a phased construction process that was a likely consequence of inadequate financial resources. Watertown, New York was a case where the Sunday school was built first, then the sanctuary-auditorium followed a few years later (I don’t know how many). And so, apparently, was the M.E. church at Spring City, Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia’s outer suburbs.

After I acquire a card, it’s routine for me to check google.maps for the building’s existence. I was pleased to note the buiilding in the right foreground is still standing — though rumored to be vacant — but that Italianate box has been replaced with a matching auditorium facility which matches the education wing. It is yet to be proven whether it belongs in this database at all. Stay tuned.
