Among the Churches

Plans have been completed by the architects, Messrs. Hallett & Rawson, for the new First Church of Christ, Scientist, which is to be erected on a lot recently bought by Christian Scientists on the east side of Eighth Street, between Crocker and School. The cost of the building alone is estimated at about $25,000, and the cost including the price paid for the lot will be in the neighborhood of $30,000. The building will be of brick and stone, in gray or neutral tints. The four large pillars, with the cornice, will be of stone, and the main body of the structure will be brick with stone trimmings.

The building will be sixty-six feet wide and one hundred and ten feet long, and will be divided into two floors. On the first or main floor will be a large audience room capable of seating seven hundred people. The auditorium, as well as other parts of the building, will be finished in old English oak. In the rear of the room, over the foyer, will be a large gallery with a capacity for seating one hundred and fifty persons in addition to the seven hundred who can be accommodated on the floor. Two committee rooms will be reached from the balcony, one situated at each end. In the rear of the platform there are to be toilet rooms, and rooms the First and Second Readers. Behind the platform, as well as in the foyer, will be stairways leading to the basement.
