First United Methodist Church

Camera: Kodak EasyShare 1485 IS.

Technically in Bloomfield, this church sits on the corner where Bloomfield, Shadyside, and Friendship come together. The architects, Weary & Kramer, were a firm from Akron that specialized in heavy Romanesque and Gothic. This church is obviously inspired by H. H. Richardson’s designs, especially his courthouse and his Trinity Church in Boston.

According to the Architectural Record, this congregation used to be called Christ’s Methodist Church.

Camera: Canon PowerShot S45.
