On opposite side of main facade there is a slightly projecting entrance bay. Each of the two main entrances has a wide pointed arched opening with double doors and a stained glass transom with the present name of the church worked in the glass. Brick buttresses between bays on the side walls."

The legal description is "Block 2, Lots 7 & 8, George Brothers Addition"

"Though most of the detailing of this church is Late Gothic Revival style, it has some tile eaves which recall the Mission Revival style. It is a basically intact design."[1]
