You see the shady north side from Edgewood. It's modest but dignified, very approachable, close to the the street and just a few steps up to the door. The two gables and little tower balance the big tower. Huge stained glass windows fill the north and west sides.
The west window at the rear of the sanctuary gets the full force afternoon sun. Towers and gables make a nice compact composition; I can imagine this as a Romanesque chapel in an ancient city.
There is nothing brand spanking new in here and who would want it? New babies and new brides, by all means.
I'm a bit worried about the plaster but it's beautiful.
Bill Ogan showed us around. There is a veterans memorial in the hall.
The sacristy is a little library, museum, and archive.
If there is a big crowd, you can open these doors between the sanctuary and the fellowship hall.
The bridal room evokes memories from generations of weddings.
Are the windows Victorian? They aren't like others I've seen in Atlanta except maybe Central Presbyterian.
From the Martha Beale Candler window: "She did what she could." We all hope for that.
"Though he slay me..."
The little windows charm.
The Annie Winship window.
The May Louise Hanye window.
I hope you want wait as long as I did to visit.
