    Gothic Sprawl

    by mrclay2000 Written Mar 28, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Just two blocks north of the CityChurch, one of my favorite churches in the city takes up an entire block. The First Baptist Church is one of the largest religious structures in the city. Though mere size may be accounted no merit in itself, and its interior judged to be stark and uninspired (so to speak), its nave is decorated with a substantial row of stained-glass windows. Overall, the structure is one of few downtown churches with true Gothic pretensions.

    Under the Golden Dome

    by mrclay2000 Updated Mar 28, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The CityChurch (built downtown in 1910) is unique among Oklahoma City churches, with its white facade, heavy entablature and gilded central dome. Two smaller cupolas flank the main feature, and though these illumine at night, the lighting on the central dome is meager at best. By day, the corinthian capitals and the stately front staircase glow with the brightness of the noonday sun, making this prominent structure stand out in all its original glory. The interior unfortunately is strictly functional, and in no way complements the outward appearance.

    Under the Golden Lamps

    by mrclay2000 Updated Mar 28, 2003

    As I said, the CityChurch does not sufficiently illuminate the gilt on its dome, but the cylindrical base is lighted as well as the smaller cupolas. At only six blocks north of the Oklahoma City National Memorial on Robinson, whether you're visiting by day or night, this is a handsome structure in our downtown area.
