Among the Churches

Current Notes

Coronado Journal

Coronado, California (First Church).—The new edifice of First Church of Christ, Scientist, is now open to the public. The church building does not follow any accepted style of architecture either in plan or design. The principal desire was to make the entrance court and general planting the main feature of interest, so all architectural ornamentation was eliminated. The plan is one that gives plenty of light and sunshine and in all rooms natural ventilation; and by setting the auditorium back on the lot the noise from the streets was shut off. The auditorium is thirty-nine by forty-four feet, and the Sunday school twenty-six by sixty-four feet.

The grounds occupied by the church have a frontage of seventy-five feet on C Avenue and one hundred and forty feet on Eighth Street, and already have been much beautified by a rare assortment of plants, flowers, vines, trees, and shrubbery.—
