St. Paul Lutheran Church – Cannon

This wood-framed church is sheathed in clapboard and is rectangular in plan with cross-gabled roof and square entry belfry. Detailing is eclectic, including such Craftsman Style elements as stick brackets and notched barge boards, with a classicized window treatment. The building’s non-institutional design was appropriate for the residential neighborhood in which it was built. Constructed in 1919, it was the second structure erected to serve the Evangelisch Lutherische St. Paulus, organized in 1896 to serve German-speaking worshippers. A new building was erected in another location in 1953, and a Spanish-speaking church now meets here. The building was designated as Highly Significant Endangered in 2002. It is currently vacant (2007).
