This is a Carpenter Gothic church that manages to create its effect with
wood and tin in lieu of the traditional Gothic stone. Galvanized tin masquerading as stone makes up much of the church's exterior detailing, while the arch is made of fir. Even with these unorthodox materials, through the magic of transubstantiation, the church still presents an impressive Victorian face to the street. (Although if you look closely, you can see that the steeple leans to the north.)
Take the steeple's hint and go north on Williams, turning left on Fremont. One block later, you'll pass a former service station at the southwest corner of Vancouver and Fremont (3441 N. Vancouver). This 1951 Art Deco building was a dilapidated disaster zone until its 2006 renovation spiffed it up.
