St. Anastasia Church

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 24 February 2009 in Architecture.

Not exactly the "golden arches," but St. Anastasia Church in Waukegan, Illinois, perhaps has more arches than all the McDonald's in Chicagoland. Architecturally, the arches did not fair well when it comes to Chicagoland weather. In the mid-80's (only twenty years after the church's construction), all exterior brick columns and arches were replaced with concrete ones. Luckily, all of the brick columns and arches inside the church are well-intact. Photo was taken Sunday, February 22, 2009.

Remarkable architecture, never seen arches like this. (Silly question by the way: were are the windows?)
