First Baptist Church: 1904

Last weekend, Erin and I decided to check out a little bit more of what Pittsburgh had to offer. 

We had spent the weekend an hour outside of the city for one of her friend's weddings, so we figured we would use the return trip as an opportunity to check out something new. We had a few other errands to run, so we ended up only making one stop, but it was a quite lucrative one, at that. 

It was a Sunday afternoon, the weather was perfect, and the neighborhood was quiet:

Having been vacant for around 25 years, many of the floors had already partially collapsed, and the majority of the staircases were nonexistent.

Time had erased the stained glass dome, and much of the glitz and glamour, but the year 1904 still rang through much of the surrounding scenery. 

Twenty-five-year-old light bulbs still hang on for dear life.

Be sure to check out more about this church over in Erin's post, and if you haven't yet done so, check out her entire blog here.

  1. That's amazing! I love old church architecture and dome ceilings. The oldest church I've been to/ would attend is in my mother land and it was built in 1785. The story is not very nice though as it was built by my great-grandmother's indigenous tribe.Vegetarian CourtesyCheese with Papas

  2. It is an up-to-date information about the buildings.. I wish you the best of everything.
