Unitarian Universalist Church of Buffalo

  • Vicinity: W Ferry St
  • Travel Genus: Sight
  • Sight Category: Building

[The First Unitarian Church building] has great interest and novelty from its unusual construction. It is to be of a beautiful buff Indiana Limestone, both outside and inside, and like the parish churches of Europe, will have also a stone floor, making it at once monumental and fireproof, The great oak wood roof trusses are largely copied from famous roofs of the thirteenth century, and the whole church will have the feeling of the attractive Gothic parish churches of the southern counties of England, in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.The Illustrated Buffalo Express
