United Methodist Church of Batavia

Stchuck and I were walking back to our cars after the Batavia homecoming parade, and he aimed his picture in the direction of the sunset. Naturally, I took a look and noticed he had found a pretty cool scene. So credit for this image goes to him. Here's his shot.

This is technically a rear view of the church. Here's a picture from the front that I took in August.

Built in 1887 in the French Romanesque style, this building was designed by S.S. Beman, famed architect of Chicago's Pullman Community and designer of the 1884 Studebaker Building on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. (from Church web site)
