Building History

Architect Frederick H. Kennedy, Jr., had completed plans for the Gothic Revival Throop Memorial Church in April 1922; contemporary newpaper reports called it a "Perpindicular Style church;" the interior featured stained glass windows by Charles J. Connick (1875–1945) , a noted painter, and stained glass designer who worked in Boston, MA, beginning in 1913; the windows were dedicated to Dr.and Mrs. Norman Bridge, active members of the congregation.

The church's interior, however, was based on Early Christian churches in Ravenna, Italy.

This was the second church for the Universalist Congregation in Pasadena, CA, the first having been completed at Walnut Street and Raymond Avenue in 1890.
