    The details on the exterior are outstanding. It would look so much better with a proper/historic paint scheme.

      People often think all churches were historically white. But during this period you can clearly see these churches in old photos painted polychrome. In My old house neighborhood was a similar ornate church like this and the people insisted it was always white even though the photo clearly showed it had a dark trim and lighter body. Many older folks told me that was just the old photo effect. Nope. The only thing white was the white plaque on the door side. Which also confirmed the building was not white. Oh well. I can only help advise.

      This church interior could also have been ornately painted and stenciled as well.

    Beautiful! A bit dated, but gorgeous nonetheless.

    Kelly and I were thinking similarly yesterday, I also posted this in the roundup. Much potential here, it seems divided up nicely. The church for the last 10 years or so was a performance space and I wish I knew about it, I would have come down to support the former owner’s efforts. Here’s a link to the old Yelp review to see some pictures of what once was. A shame they’re not still in business.

      That’s where I saw it, I happened to catch your comment (I usually look through comments the day before the next link exchange.) Thanks! 🙂

    I want this and I would do exactly what Mr. Wallace did with it. It was amazing. Such a shame he lost it all. I would buy it and bring it back to life as a old time Parisien salon just like he had it and he could perform whenever he wanted. Lovely. Thanks for sharing the link.
