Father Pitt

Why should the beautiful die?

Mount Washington Baptist Church

Mount Washington Baptist Church

A simple Gothic design that leaves huge openings for stained glass. The parsonage is a typical Pittsburgh foursquare house, but attached directly to the left side of the church.


Note the usual Pittsburgh adaptations to steep slopes.

The congregation these days has a taste for delightfully direct and confrontational signs like PREPARE TO MEET THY GOD or BE SURE YOUR SIN WILL FIND YOU OUT. Old Pa Pitt approves. Those signs make religion sound lively and exciting, the way it should be.
