Entrance to First Baptist Church

Entrance to First Baptist Church
There was much discussion over the design of First Baptist Church's tower. Walker and Weeks provided nearly 15 designs, but each was rejected by the church's Committee on Architecture. When a design was finally submitted that met their approval, they were quickly advised that the tower would cost about $50,000 more. Dr. Swasey, chairman of the committee, responded: "Increase my pledge by $50,000." | Source: Shaker Historical Society
