Description

Postcard showing the First Church of Christ, Scientist, formerly located on 24 North Rosalind Avenue. The building was constructed between 1926 and May 1928. Architect George Foote Dunham built it in the Italian Renaissance and Classical Revival style with 2 and a half stories, masonry, a copper dome, and a main facade with a Doric portico. From 1928 to 1975, it was the home of the First Church of Christ, Scientist. The Christian Scientists sold it in 1975 to the St. George Greek Orthodox Church. The Church sits across from Lake Eola and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
