St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, Manchester

St. Paul’s Evangelical Lutheran Church

Here is another entry in our expanding catalogue of churches with the sanctuary upstairs. Now the Northside Church of God, this church, built in 1890, is a typical rowhouse-neighborhood church, making the most of its small lot. The mansard roof over the tower section looks later; it is possible that a tower or spire was damaged and replaced.


We can just make out the not-quite-obliterated name “St. Paul’s” above the date.

Front of the church

This cornerstone was obviously added later, and the most probable explanation is that it marks the date when the church passed out of the hands of the Lutherans.
