The church whlcn stands at Jackson
and Jefferson streets is built of Kingwood

which has all of the advantages ol'

One of the features of the church Is

especially praiseworthy, flight in the
centre of the roof ol the church there
is a handsome dome. This is one of the
prettiest In the state of West Virginia.
It cost more than J5.000. The Gothic
system of architecture Is carried out
to the letter and everything goes to indicate
that the church has been well
planned. The lighting system was installed

To the east of the pulpit lies the
session room, whlcn is seventeen feet
square and the library is found at the
entrance to the Sunday school room
from Jefferson street. The choir room
is directly above the session's room
and the pastor's study is located over
the entrance to the church at a point
where the main tower is located.
The basement of the church is most
complete. A social room is provided
which will seat 300-people at table.
Nearby a kitchen io provided togetljer
with all of the necessary culinary
equipment. Included among these is
a range and steam table. A ladies' par
lor. 30 feet by 32 feet, is provided, and
already the ladies are making arrangements
to equip this very elaborately.
Midway between tlio social room and
the ladies' parlor there is a stage erected
and this will be used whenever children's
entertainments are held instead
of having them in the church proper.
A committee room is also in the basement
and the unique feature about it
is that it is possible to leave it at the
level of the sidewalk and step directly
on to the street.

it may be stated that it positively

found the beginners' room. Here the
children of the kindergarten are quar
tercel in a room thirty-five feet square

room of the main school the primary
department occupies four rooms; the
junior department five rooms; the inI
tcrmediate department four rooms and

other denominations attend this class.

are two rooms that are each thirty-five
feet square. One ot these will be occupied
by the Boy Scouts and the other
one will be utilized by the Girls' club.
The main tower on the church is
ninety-seven feet high and an opening
is left for the chimes, which in all
probability will be secured at some fu
ture time. The big tower is at Jefferson
and Jackson streets, but there is
j a tower at a point oetween the Sunday j
school room and the church entrance j
along Jefferson street. A third tower
rests at the eastern end of the church. I
The roof that covers the edifice Is oi

edifice on the same spot, which dates
back to 1821. The congregation was
