First Universalist Church

(Rochester NY) The building of the First Universalist Church of Rochester, New York brought three unconventional elements together. The three were the visionary architect, Claude Bragdon, the innovative organ builder, Robert Hope-Jones, and the religion, Universalism. Today modern skyscrapers surround this church but its unique design and interior decorations make it an architectural spectacle.
