Lawrence (Douglas County)
Listed in State Register 2018-11-17

Architect: John G. Haskell
Category: religious facility

The First Methodist Episcopal Church has been continually used as a religious facility since 1891 and is in downtown Lawrence, Kansas, adjacent to the city’s Original Townsite plat. The oldest portion of the building was designed by John G. Haskell in the Romanesque Revival architectural style in 1888 and built between 1889 and 1891. The building was expanded in 1962 with an L-shaped, Modern addition designed by Robert & Ericson to be used as an education wing. A third addition was added in 1987 to the east of the 1962 addition. The church building retains good historic integrity of location, setting, design, materials, and workmanship that allow the building to convey its architectural significance from its original construction through to the 1960s addition.
