First Presbyterian

First Presbyterian Church in downtown Duluth is an historic site. The church is one of Duluth’s most prominent Romanesque buildings. Tiffany stained glass windows are part of the uniqueness of this building. The woodworking in the interior is also fabulous. (I was there to attend a memorial.) Here are some other photos I’ve posted on this blog over the years http://www.duluthdailyphoto.com/first-presbyterian-steeple/, http://www.duluthdailyphoto.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/13-08-15-Steeple.jpg and http://www.duluthdailyphoto.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/06/2013-June-2-Towers-IMG_3372.jpg

Pretty Peonies at church gardens

The First United Methodist Church on Skyline Parkway A.K.A. “The CopperTop,” Has several gardens. I’m guessing about 7, but I might be wrong. I’m sure someone will correct me. Several members of the church take turns wedding and watering the gardens, as well as planning them. A couple of spots have benches as the parking lot is the perfect place to perch for a view of Lake Superior when the ships are heading for the canal. (We even have a butterfly garden, but that’s a post for another time.)

This is my first year volunteering to upkeep 2 of the gardens. These peonies are not in “my” spot, but they were so pretty I couldn’t help but take a photo.

Red Vines

These red vines are on St. Paul’s Episcopal Church on East Superior Street.

From the church’s website.

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church was  designed by the prominent New York City Architectural firm of Cram, Goodhue, and Ferguson.

Construction having began in April of 1912 and the first service held in it in May of 1913.

It is built in the perpendicular Gothic architectural style characterized by massive stone work inside and out, slate roof, leaded glass casement windows and truncated bell tower. The Parish House is a later addition, having been built in 1928-29.

The church itself is of typical cruciform shape having been patterned, on a much smaller scale, after Canterbury Cathedral.

I’ve taken photos of this church in the past. See these links:
