Building Notes

Architectural historians Sally Woodbridge and Roger Montgomery wrote of the Saint Joseph Church: "A richer sheathing was intended for this stripped Gothic design, but the depression limited its decorative expression to sparing but effective cast concrete detail. The interior is also interesting for its proto-Modern expression." (See Sally Woodbridge and Roger Montgomery, A Guide to Architecture in Washington State, [Seattle: University of Washington Press, 1980], p. 164.)
