House with a tower
Church search

I saw this interesting house while searching for another subject in Portsmouth, Ohio. And I couldn’t resist turning around to take a photo. I have no idea of how old it is, but the features remind me of Queen Anne style architecture.

Some of the Queen Anne features that I note:
•Steep roof
•One-story porch that extends across one or two sides of the house
•Round or square towers
•Wall surfaces textured with decorative shingles, patterned masonry, or half-timbering
•Bay windows

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
