Memorial Presbyterian Church
I learn otherwise I will assume that the 1923 “rebuilding” of
this church was not entirely new construction but a thorough remodeling
and renovation. The style is not inconsistent with a small
late-nineteenth century chapel, although the nature of the stucco
seems to be of a later date. There are several nice features here—the
half-timbering is consistent with the steep pitch of the roof
and the entry vestibule, and the triple window above the entry is
part of the idiom of later nineteenth-century construction.
