Beman - Fifth Church of Christ Scientist, 1904

Color photograph by Linda Beierle Bullen, of Fifth Church of Christ Scientist at 4840 S. Dorchester, Chicago. Now known as Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church, this building conveys majesty and scale. Though it has no pedimented focal point, the pedimented and pilastered double entrances, with a colonnated front porch, provide symmetry to an impressive facade. The original cast iron lighting fixtures remain. Fenced off and looking abandoned, the future of this Beman building seems uncertain. "Solon S. Beman: Architecture in Illinois" exhibit.
