Title : First Christian Church
Creator : Saarinen, Eliel; Saarinen, Eero
Creator role : Architect
Date : 1941
Current location : Columbus, Indiana, United States
Description of work : "First Christian Church (1941), originally named Tabernacle Church of Christ, is one of the first Modern religious buildings in America and the first Modern building to be constructed in Columbus. Nationally recognized at the time of its construction, it had an impact on church design in the post-World War II era. First Christian Church was one of two churches designed by the firm of Saarinen and Saarinen, consisting of Eliel Saarinen and his son Eero. Saarinen answered questions about the suitability of a Modern design for a religious building by saying: ‘Our forefathers and we ourselves have been using the dead styles of alien cultures. We have combined them in thousands of different ways until the last drop of expressiveness has been squeezed out.’ Many believe that First Christian Church is a synthesis of the father’s and sons work, and of their independent approaches: Eliel’s focus on materials, craft, and relationship of the building to the user; and Eero’s Modern aesthetic. In 1941, Time Magazine described the building as, ‘the costliest modern church in the world, planned by Europe’s most famous modern architect and his son.’ Newsweek, in 1942, noted, ‘In style, the new Tabernacle is utterly unlike the seventeen other churches in Columbus or, for that matter, in almost any other city in the world.’" (Source: "National Historic Landmarks Program: First Christian Church", tps.cr.nps.gov/nhl/detail.cfm?ResourceId=1695315809&R…, Accessed June 8, 2009) For an exhaustive description of the building, including pertinent history, the architect’s biography, and bibliography of evaluative articles, please refer to the National Historic Landmark nomination form submitted for the building available at www.nps.gov/history/nhl/designations/samples/in/1stchris.pdf

Thank you for your views and comments.

This frame vernacular church was built circa 1920 by a black congregation. It has a basic rectangular form with gabled roof. The entrance, from which a squared belfry rises, is covered by a hip roof. The windows, especially the triangular lights at the top show the influence of the Gothic-Revival style on a vernacular design.

The church was named for Rev. Robert Henry, pastor of Cub Creek Church in the late 18th century, a man dedicated to the ministering and teaching of slaves. I don’t know the denomination of the congregation nor the date when the structure ceased to be used; Cub Creek Church, however, was a Presbyterian church and it’s possible that Henry Church was as well. The building, at present, shows a great deal of neglect.
