Omg, these Seattle Church Buildings are a gift from the heavens, K THX BAI LOL! No, but seriously, Seattle has some very significant historic places of worship.
Over the years, churches have been at the forefront of the Pacific Northwest preservation movement.
Just the other day, news broke that 82 year old University Baptist Church is going to be sold
as the congregation dwindles (though it is not clear what will become of the building itself). The image I want to share comes from a 1901 edition of Washington Illustrated
atures a number of Seattle area churches along with their then-pastors.
The shot in the bottom left is of First Hill’s Trinity Parish. The building was damaged in the 2001 earthquake and was just recently restored at a price of $7 million. On the bottom right is Methodist Episcopal Church, the precursor to First Methodist Church on 5th and Marion (which was recently saved
). Click on the image for a higher-res view.
