The Romanesque Revival Church, The Grove

I could have sworn I photographed this church back in the summer of 2014, when I passed by on Taylor Avenue. Apparently I did not, but I was impressed with the giant arches of this Romanesque Revival edifice at the corner of Gibson.

The Romanesque style features rounded arches with heavy walls and simple decoration in St. Louis, and this church is much more restrained in ornamentation compared to industrial magnates’ houses such as the Cupples House.
