Delaware Avenue Baptist

The main portion of the Delaware Avenue Baptist Church was constructed with Medina sandstone.  This south tower is the larger of the two towers.  Just to the right of the tower is a smaller Greek cross window.  A matching window appears on the church’s north side.

This church has three Greek cross centered stained glass windows.  They are the first known use of this design by Coxhead, but he repeats the design in several other subsequent buildings.

To raise money for the construction of the church the congregation sold its original church, leaving them without a place to worship.   They made an arrangement with Temple Beth Zion to worship in their building until this rear area was completed.  They then worshipped here until the front of the church was ready.
